Sadly, Pride and Prejudice zombie series rumors aren't true

Zombie lovers everywhere were thrilled when it was reported earlier this week, jumping off from a tweet written by Twitter user PrideandZombies, that a six-episode miniseries was in the works based on the hit novel Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

Unfortunately, as reported by Seth Grahame-Smith, who added the undead to Jane Austen's novel, "I have no idea who controls the 'prideandzombies' Twitter account, but rest assured—it ain't me."

Grahame-Smith, who used his own Twitter feed to spread the word, reported that "there's NO TRUTH to those PPZ 'miniseries' rumors floating around on the Internets. ... The plan has always been to make the book a feature film."

Hopefully, that will put the rumors to rest. Only since they're zombie rumors ... you never know.
