It’s Official: Director Chosen for ‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’

After weeks of names flooding the Web, Deadline reports that Mike White is officially signed on to direct Lionsgate’s Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, the adaptation of the Seth Grahame-Smith novel that spices up Jane Austen’s time-tested 1813 literary classic with a smattering of flesh-eating walking corpses. White, who scripted School of Rock, made his feature directing debut on Year of the Dog. Exciting news? Maybe. It’s hard to bring a comedic edge into the horror-verse.
