Lily Collins In Talks For PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES; Burr Steers To Direct
We thought this one was a goner, but like the brain-eaters from its title it has risen from the grave. Variety report that the project has a new director in Burr Steers, and that Mirror Mirror actress Lily Collins is in negotiations to star as Elizabeth Bennet.
This adaptation of the parody novel by Seth Grahame-Smith (also a graphic novel by Tony Lee) has seen its share of directors and cast members (David O Russel and Natalie Portman among them) come and go, and last we had heard it seemed to have finally given up and lay down to rest. But now Variety report that there's life in the old corpse yet, as a new director and star have come aboard. Burr Steers (Igby Goes Down, Charlie St. Cloud) has apparently signed on to direct, with 24 year old Mortal Instruments actress Lily Collins in final talks to play the female lead. Darko Entertainment and Panorama Media are producing with Panorama funding.
