Natalie Portman was originally cast in the film as Elizabeth Bennet before dropping out. Ironically, Keira Knightley, who is often considered her lookalike, played the role of Elizabeth Bennet in Pride & Prejudice (2005), whose original source material by Jane Austen was parodied by the 2009 novel which this film is adapted from.

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains. Never was this truth more plain than in the recents attacks at Netherfield Park, in which an entire household was slaughtered by a horde of the living dead during a whist party.

I have to admit that when I read the book, it was the first Jane Austen I had ever read. I found it to be a fascinating mash-up. I was curious to see how it played on the big screen and was not totally disappointed in the effort.
I must confess that I watched the Kiera Knightly version of Pride and Prejudice to get some feel for the story on film. That was a mistake as all the characters in this film suffered in comparison. Lily James (Lady Rose from Downton Abbey) gave a valiant effort, but Knightly was far superior in the lead role.
I did not find the violence to be excessive, but the idea of brains as Communion was gross.
