But it was right there in the title the whole time, you see. "Zombies." Zombies don't die. And neither will this movie.
Is "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" cursed in real life? Sure seems that way, as yet another director has walked away from the project.
Craig Gillespie, the man behind hits like "Lars and the Real Girl" and "Fright Night," has just become the third—that's right, third—director to wash his hands of this screen adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's novel, which (in case you can't tell from the title) mixes the 1813 Jane Austen classic with a legion of bloodthirsty zombies.
Which is a pretty cool idea, if you ask us. (So far, no one has.) Get More »
Author Jane Austen knew a thing or two about gossip, which is why it's more than fitting that a new 21st century twist on one of her beloved works should star a gossip girl.
That's our roundabout way of telling you that Blake Lively, she of the traveling pants shining in Green Lantern's light, may climb aboard "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies."
UPDATE: Well, so much for that. Emma Stone has passed on playing the lead role in "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies," according to Deadline.
No one seems to really want to make this movie! Actually, the book was a cute gimmicky amusement, at best... maybe it just needs to stay on the shelf?
We shall see...

Emma Stone may soon become quite the authority on the undead.
She'll get to wear period clothing this time around, too, as the "Zombieland" actress has been offered the lead role in "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies," according to The Hollywood Reporter. Get More »
UPDATE: For real this time.
Lionsgate has confirmed Craig Gillespie to direct "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies."
Lionsgate has been having a hell of a time in locking down a director for "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies." You'd think a good majority of the filmmakers out there would be dying (or undying, ha!) for a crack at adapting Seth Grahame-Smith's novel that incorporates walking corpses into Jane Austen's classic tale of early 19th Century manners and morals.

Since the beginning of time, books have been a conduit of learning, a cornerstone of human communication and, most important of all, the primary source for awesome movies.
Just check out the new Robert Pattinson vehicle "Water for Elephants," based on Sara Gruen's bestseller, if you don't believe us -- only a true literary genius could have ever dreamed up that gravity-defying head of hair.
And considering that some of the most beloved movies of the past decade have come straight off of the page -- "Harry Potter, "Twilight" and "The Lord of the Rings" just to name a few -- the marriage between books and film has never been stronger. Get More »
Now who will lead the zombie hordes?
"Pride And Prejudice And Zombies," something of a "troubled production" if there ever was one, has suffered yet another setback: it's lost its director, Mike White.
Yes, that makes two.
White, the writer of such comedy hits as "Nacho Libre" and "School of Rock," was brought on board to direct "Pride" after David O. Russell dropped out. White would've been working with Russell's screenplay adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's novel. Get More »
Mike White has closed the deal to direct "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies," the adaptation of the Seth Grahame-Smith novel that spices up the 1813 Jane Austen literary classic with a smattering of roaming, flesh-eating corpses and became an instant cult favorite.
White signed on after the departure of the originally pegged director David O. Russell—rumored to have left the project because of a scheduling conflict with his intended star, Natalie Portman.
Now that White is in place, casting should soon begin, starting with the beloved heroine Elizabeth Bennet and her dear, disdainful Mr. Darcy. Get More »
