Emma Stone May Fight The Undead Again

You might think that fending off swarms of stumbling, running, moaning, flesh-hungry zomboids across the US in Zombieland would be enough for one young woman’s lifetime (and possibly one sequel). But nope – Emma Stone is mulling an offer to star in Pride And Prejudice And Zombies.

Yes, Lionsgate and Fright Night remake director Craig Gillespie are looking to have her bring all that zombie-fighting experience to the period drama/horror mash-up based on Seth Grahame-Smith’s take on Jane Austen’s tale.

The film has been trundling through the development wasteland for a while now, burning through directors such as David O. Russell and Mike White and losing star Natalie Portman in the process (though she’s still attached to produce).

Stone would take over the lead role of Elizabeth Bennet, who, when she’s not dealing with her squabbling sisters, overbearing mother or the alternately patience-testing/heart-fluttering attentions of Mr Darcy, has to help battle the roaming undead. There’s no word yet on whether she’ll actually take the role, but Gillespie and the team are crossing their fingers even as Grahame-Smith and Marti Noxon are hard at work revising the script.
