Pride and Prejudice and Zombies gets Emma Stone
Alright, I will admit it. This one makes sense. Not only is Emma Stone pretty darn attractive but she plays nice… With Zombies.
As one of the stars of the 2009 hit Zombieland, Emma Stone has had more than her fare share of screen time with Zombies. Now she has been offered the lead role of Elizabeth Bennet in the big screen adaptation, or the original Pride and Predjuice (penned by Jane Austen in 1813) that was adapted to include something more… Interesting, in 2009 by Seth Grahame-Smith.
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, takes the original Austen snore, and incorporates Zombies into the story. The humorous book about a quaint English countryside which is plagued by ‘the stricken’ and brought to its knees. Bennett, the hero of the story, is taught by her father (along with her 4 sisters) into becoming a zombie fighting force, which sets out to eradicate the menace. According to Variety, Natalie Portman is attached to be at least partially involved in the production.
Natalie Portman, Annette Savitch, Richard Kelly, Ted Hamm and Sean McKittrick are producing through Portman’s Handsomecharlie Films and Kelly’s Darko Films.
Emma Stone, is a perfect fit for the part, in my opinion. And perhaps this will make for an excellent cult classic.
