Mike White to Direct "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies!" 


Mike White ("Chuck & Buck," "The Good Girl," "Year of the Dog") aka erstwhile "Amazing Race" contestant, has been blessed by Lionsgate to direct "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies."

Based on Seth Grahame-Smith's novel (if you haven't read it yet, what are you waiting for?), the project combines Jane Austen's sense and sensibility narrative with zombies!

Original director David O. Russell left the project but left behind a really great script according to Deadline. Natalie Portman also exited. She was slated to star as Elizabeth Bennet. Perfect casting no?

Portman is still producing though, and once upon a time, Russell wanted Scarlett Johansson and Bradley Cooper for the Bennet and Mr. Darcy roles, respectively.

So who should star as Bennet and Mr. Darcy? I say, Carey Mulligan should star as Bennet. She's been getting all the parts lately! :happy
