Elton John's Rocket Pictures is hoping to reinvent the Jane Austen classic Pride and Prejudice with an extraterrestrial twist. The period drama will deviate from its course when an alien crash-landing disrupts the life of Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy in Pride and Predator, reports DailyVariety.

"It felt like a fresh and funny way to blow apart the done-to-death Jane Austen genre by literally dropping this alien into the middle of a costume drama, where he stalks and slashes to horrific effect," David Furnish, John's partner in life and business, told Variety.

The movie will follow Rocket's Shakespeare adaptation Gnomeo and Juliet, an animated film that features James McEvoy and Emily Blunt voicing the star-crossed lovers in a world of warring indoor and outdoor gnomes and will be released in 2010. Will Clark is set to direct Pride and Predator, and Rocket partners Steve Hamilton Shaw and Furnish are producing. John will supervise the music, as he does in each Rocket-produced film.
