Emma to Play Lizzie in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

Remember my Pride and Prejudice and Zombies conspiracy theory? The one that asserts that announcements and pronouncements regarding the making of the film are designed to keep the book front and center in the publicity rumor mill? Well, another announcement about the film's casting has been made.

Emma Stone, she of the red hot upwardly spiraling career, has been named as a viable candidate for playing Lizzie Bennet, zombie slayer extraordinaire. Emma's had experience playing a zombie slayer in Zombie land, so why not? Click on this link to read the news article.

The actress can clean up nicely to look romantic.

Ewwww...Natalie Portman was smart to duck out of this one. This casting choice makes more sense but I pictured Kate Beckinsale as the zombies Lizzie since she has experience with those vampire movies...whatever !
