Emma Stone May Fight Zombies in Pride and Prejudice

Emma Stone has been offered the chance to play Jane Austen's classic literary heroine Elizabeth Bennett, but there's a twist: She'll be fighting zombies and her burgeoning attraction to Mr. Darcy. Variety reports that the in-demand actress has been offered the lead in Craig Gillespie's genre mash-up Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, a hot project that's already burned through two potential directors (Mike White and David O. Russell) and flirted with two other leading ladies (Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson) in the last year. Should Stone sign on, maybe this movie can finally come to undead life.
