File this one under a win for the zombies.
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, the uber-popular novel by Seth Grahame Smith that put a deadly twist on the Jane Austin classic, is getting another shot at the big screen — this time, with Lily Collins (aka the actress who once dated Taylor Lautner) in the lead.
Burr Steers will spearhead the project, writes Variety, taking over from a longlist that included names like David O. Russell, Mike White and Craig Gillespie.
Incidentally, it was reported on Wednesday that Portman will star opposite Michael Fassbender in a new adaptation of Macbeth.
So, it’s a win-win for everyone this morning.
