Could Blake Lively take the lead in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies?

09.23.2011

Is anyone going to take the damn lead in PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES? I figured this would be a no-brainer. F*ck, I'll do it. I got an award for acting in middle school. I also love zombies. That qualifies me, right?

While it's obvious that I won't be taking the lead in the film, there's a rumor that Blake Lively has been approached to play Elizabeth Bennet. Source of the site, Twitch.com say that she has met with the director, Craig Gillespie (FRIGHT NIGHT) and was offered the role but no one knows if she would be down for it. If the news is true, I bet she'll take it.

Four ladies have already turned down this part: Emma Stone, Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson, and Mia Wasikowska. Portman is still on board as a producer.

Someone take the damn role already!

@WalkAway: Right you are, Gemma Arterton would be perfect. Feels like the most natural choice of all now.

I honestly can't even picture it in my head, it doesn't compute. Gemma Arterton would be perfect for this role.

I've never read the book, but is it literally like Pride and Prejudice with zombies in it?

She is definitely hot enough to make me watch a movie with her being the main character for two hours. I would have rathered all of those other ladies but I'm glad to see her getting a chance. She was pretty good in The Town and Green Lantern was bad for many more reasons than her shit acting.

She's going to be a brain-dead zombie, right? Talk about acting to your strengths...

She was terrible in Green Lantern

I get it, she's pretty but pretty doesn't a good actress make. Fuck me she was awful in The Green Lantern. Blake Lively as a fighter pilot? Talk about suspension of disbelief. Come back, Indy in a nuked fridge, all is forgiven...

Always liked the concept of the book and thought it suited a movie. But with all those actresses turning down the role and I also know a lot of directors have been in and out I'm starting to suspect either a bad script or some other production problem.

That said, I wouldn't mind Blake Lively all that much. A small but ok performance in The Town that showed potential. Green Lantern was shit, but not so much her fault.

by the time this movie gets made it won't be about Pride and Prejudice or zombies! LOL! Hopefully they do take their time to get it right though.

I haven't seen her at her full potential, yet, but this may be a great choice. Hope she gets serious work where she can get break a sweat. I know she can do great.
