Somewhere, there’s a zombie precariously close to jumping over a shark.
Anne Hathaway and James McAvoy are being considered for roles in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Dread Central is reporting. If the rumors are true, McAvoy will play the part of Darcy, and Hathaway will play Elizabeth Bennett.
The film, which will be directed by Mike White and produced by Natalie Portman, is an adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith‘s zombification of Jane Austin’s classic tale. It will mark the 324th zombie-related project to be green lit since the mysterious outbreak hit Hollywood in 2007. What makes this particular bout of over-saturation so disturbing is that no matter how badly producers run zombies into the ground, they always seem to drag themselves back up. Stay tuned for Meet the Zombie Fockers. (Pajiba via Dread Central)
