No Mash-Ups, I’m A Purist

Now, while I like mash-ups in general, reveling in the ridiculous conflagration of, say, The Watchmen and My Little Pony:

But one thing I’ve never been on-board with is messing with my faves, unless it’s sufficiently separate from the source (in other words, I liked Clueless).

So I’ve got trepidation about the upcoming Pride and Prejudice and Zombies movie, currently being cast. Emma Stone (who was in Easy A and Zombieland) is in talks to play Elizabeth Bennet, and James MacAvoy’s been mentioned as Darcy. Now I own the book, but haven’t read it; I’ve heard it’s delightful, but like I said, I’m nervous.

Not that authors, books and concepts should be sacrosanct, but I’m having a hard time wrapping my head around this concept. Maybe because I find zombies so unpleasant in the first place?

Some of you have read it, while some of you feel as I do. What do you think?
