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.
