Good news for those of you looking forward to Pride And Prejudice And Zombies–they’ve just extended the female lead role to no less than Blake Lively. Will she take it? No one’s quite sure yet, but either way, it’s going to provide at least one prime terror hottie slot to someone.
Interestingly, the chair has already been pulled out for several others, but no one would sit down: Emma Stone, Mia Wasikowska, Scarlett Johannson, even Natalie Portman–who’s already a producer on this one–all have been mentioned, but none of them is taking the job.
Pride And Prejudice And Zombies is pretty much exactly what the title suggests, the standard Pride And Prejudice plotline with Elizabeth Bennet looking for love. And that all sort of gets derailed when a zombie apocalypse gets fired up.
We don’t often see this sort of thing, so I hope it gets pulled off finally. But no one’s heard much about release dates or shooting starts, so keep it right here for all the latest.
