Emma Stone to play Elizabeth Bennet in ‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’?
Emma Stone, when she smiles, is absolutely breathtaking.
I’ve had a crush on Emma since watching her in Easy A (by the way, if you haven’t seen this movie yet, please make sure you do). The 22-year-old actress has recently finished filming The Amazing Spider-Man, but it turns out she might be following that up with another major project.
According to online reports, Emma has been offered the lead role of Elizabeth Bennet in the upcoming film adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith’s novel, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Natalie Portman has dropped out because of scheduling conflicts but she is still on board as a producer.
Released in April 2009, the book is a mash-up that puts a fresh twist to Jane Austen’s classic 1813 novel, Pride and Prejudice, by injecting into the narrative a number of pop-culture elements.
Thoughts? We think Emma’s a good fit for the role since she’s no stranger to zombies as she starred in the 2009 flick Zombieland.
