Northanger Abattoir

Yet another testament to the infinite remixability of Jane Austen:

First, it was Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, the Seth Grahame-Smith novel due out in May that intersperses Austen’s familiar prose with scenes of “bone crunching zombie action,” which reportedly already has Hollywood studios vying to acquire its rights. Now comes the news that Elton John’s Rocket Pictures intends to produce Pride and Predator, “which veers from the traditional period costume drama when an alien crash lands and begins to butcher the mannered protags, who suddenly have more than marriage and inheritance to worry about.”

Pride and Predator! Genius! And yes, I know, Northanger Abbey is already sort of a horror story, or a send-up of one. If you’ve got a better title idea, put it in the comments.
