Pride and Predator

Pride and Predator to give Jane Austen an extreme makeover

The new film from Elton John's Rocket Pictures will have the seven-foot extraterrestrial give the characters from Pride and Prejudice something more immediate to worry about than making advantageous marriages

I don't really know what else I can add.

If they made Pride and Predator with the intention for it to be serious, and worked really hard on it, then I think just the unintentional comedic nature of the film alone would be enough to make it a "so bad it's good" thing. But if they're going to try to make it funny intentionally, that kind of makes me want to shrink away from it. I don't really know what to think about this. The idea sounds awesome, but something is telling me to be wary.

At first when I read that I though they were going to make Jane Austen herself into a seven-foot killer alien. Now that would be awesome.

This may be a version of this classic tale that I would actually be interested in.
Anime is kind of like fish in that it is better the less "fishy" it is.
