NBC SAN DIEGO – Lily James has transformed from a princess into a zombie slayer.

The star of “Cinderella” was at Comic-Con on Saturday to show off footage from her latest film, “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.”

The fairy-tale princess and zombie-killer have more in common than it might seem, James said.

“Both of them are so strong and independent and fierce,” she said. “And to get to play women like that is just so wonderful because it doesn’t always happen and they don’t always exist in film.”

In “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies,” set for release next year, James plays Elizabeth Bennett, one of five killer zombie-slayers “who push the men aside and stride into a hoard of the undead.”

The 26-year-old actress said she enjoyed learning to fight and perform stunts for the role, adding, “I’m hoping that `Cinderella 2′ might have zombies in it.”

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – The undead are no match for the Bennet sisters.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’ first trailer debuted at the Screen Gems panel at Comic-Con on Saturday in Hall H, showing Elizabeth Bennet in all her dagger-swinging glory.

Director Burr Steers directed the film adaptation of author Seth Grahame-Smith’s novel, which stars Lily James, Sam Riley, Matt Smith, Douglas Booth, Jack Huston and Lena Headey. The film focuses on the heroes of Jane Austen’s classic novel Pride and Prejudice as they face the zombie apocalypse.

“Not only is she master of the female arts but the deadly as well,” a character says of Elizabeth (James) in the trailer.

James told the Hall H crowd that her Elizabeth will be a “fierce” one. “Being us five girls, the Bennet sisters, fighting together and destroying together was really, really fun,” she said of her castmembers.

Matt Smith (Mr. Collins) said that the film maintains what readers are used to from Austen’s book, except that “people’s heads are getting blown off.” He added: “Zombies are exactly what Pride and Prejudice needed, I think.”

Jack Huston (Mr. Wickham) was rather tight-lipped when asked how his character has changed from the book, explaining that he was reluctant to give too much away. But he did say that, of all the film’s characters, Wickham had been altered the most from Austen’s iteration.

Grahame-Smith said he didn’t have a lot of notes for Steers, as he was “just excited it was getting made,” given the project’s “false starts.”

“My intention was taking all of [Austen’s] themes and turning them up to 11,” Grahame-Smith continued.

Screen Gems releases Pride and Prejudice and Zombies in theaters Feb. 5, 2016.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY – Pride and Prejudice and Zombies might not be your typical story of the undead, but you still dispatch the walkers in the same old-fashioned way.

The cast of the upcoming film based on Seth Grahame-Smith’s book — including Lily James, Matt Smith, Douglas Booth, Jack Huston, Sam Riley, and Bella Heathcote — stopped by the Entertainment Weekly Lounge at Comic-Con to talk about killing zombies in old-timey clothes.

“You have to kill them twice. You have to get them in the brain. Then they’re screwed and never coming back,” James says. “[The film’s costume designer Julian Day] added leather and an Eastern influence on the costumes. At times, I had a leather corset and tight pants and other times, a big skirt that I could lift up and kick them in the head.”
