‘Pride And Prejudice And Zombies’ And No Director, Again

Sad news for Lionsgate who is now back to square one on the their hunt for a director to turn Seth Grahame-Smith novel Pride And Prejudice And Zombies into a live-action feature film. Deadline reports that Mike White has just dropped out of getting behind the camera for the adaptation that injects flesh-eating corpses to Jane Austen’s 1813 literary classic. White is said to have had a preexisting commitment at HBO and they couldn’t make schedules mesh. There’s apparently no ill-will, but it sucks that Lionsgate’s going to have to figure something out on such short notice. Might I suggest Cloverfield/Let Me In director Matt Reeves, again?
