Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Loses Third Director

Lizzie Bennet's date with the zombies has hit yet another roadblock: Craig Gillespie, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies' third director, just dropped out of the project owing to reported differences over casting. Gillespie had signed up to replace Mike White, who had signed up to replace David O. Russell (who left to make another movie). Meanwhile, the movie still hasn't found an Elizabeth Bennet, though it has at this point considered most A-list actresses under the age of 30. Tough times for a bright-eyed Regency zombie killer-slash-bachelorette.
