While other genre sites were spreading unconfirmed rumors of Black Death‘s Christopher Smith being a “lock” to direct Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Lionsgate has other ideas…
Vulture is now reporting that Craig Gillespie, helmer of DreamWorks’ Fright Night remake, is in fresh talks to revive this delayed project. Recently, writer-director Mike White exited the adaptation, which David O. Russell had been toying with before he decided to adapt the video game Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune.
The Seth Grahame-Smith-penned novel mixes Jane Austen’s 1813 classic novel “Pride and Prejudice,” centering on Elizabeth Bennet’s quest for love and independence amid the outbreak of a virus that turns the dead into zombies. The story’s set in an alternate version of 19th Century England that features deadly ancestors roaming the countryside.
