The actress who made a splash battling the shuffling undead in the 2009 comedy Zombieland has been offered the job of fighting them again in director Craig Gillespie’s adaptation of Seth Grahme-Smith’s comic horror novel Pride And Prejudice And Zombies. Previously Mia Wasikowska and Anne Hathaway both flirted with taking the role, but passed.
The film takes Jane Austen’s classic novel and sets it against a zombie outbreak in 18th century England.
If a deal is reached, Stone would become the first cast member to join the project. There’s no word yet as to when the movie will start production and Lionsgate has yet to schedule a release date for it. Hopefully, with this start to casting some of those dates will be announced soon.
