Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

Natalie Portman is producing the film for the adaptation of the novel by Seth Grahame-Smith. She was originally set to play Elizabeth Bennett but is still on board as producer. Scarlet Johannson, Tilda Swinton, Mia Wasikowska, Catherine O'Hara and now Anne Hathaway have been mentioned as possibilities for the the zombie-slaying Lizzie. Bradley Cooper and recently James McAvoy have been rumored for Darcy's role. The original director has dropped out and a new one is on board. [source: Digital Spy]

Wouldn't it be weird if it did end up being McAvoy & Hathaway after their pairing in Becoming Jane?

(I'm posting this for those interested however I'll be happy if it never materializes)

  1. I stand by my opinion that if it's not Portman it should be a British actress. What about Carey Mulligan? She proved she can kick-butt in Doctor Who!

  2. Shhhh, don't give producers any ideas! I like Carey Mulligan! I wouldn't want her to be cast in this! :)

  3. All those choices are awful! I too hope this never materializes. James McAvoy is no Darcy! Maybe they could get the Lost In Austen cast back, that could be interesting!

  4. Not James, please. I love him, and I don't want to see him playing in that... thing. Besides, as much as I love him, I can't imagine him as Darcy.

  5. I hate zombies. Why'd they have to do this to Jane Austen?
