Lily James tries killing zombiesSAN DIEGO - Lily James has transformed from a princess into a zombie slayer.
The star of “Cinderella’’ attended 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 horde of the undead.’’
The 26-year-old added, “I’m hoping that ‘Cinderella 2’ might have zombies in it.’’
