UPDATED: Emma Stone is still fighting zombies, now with Pride and Prejudice

Jun. 24, 2011by: Dave Davis

UPDATE: Deadline reports Stone has passed on the P&P&Z opportunity, claiming that "an offer was made but it never got to the negotiation stage." So we're still waiting for a zombie-battling lady in frilly attire. Suggestions?

June 22, 2011: While a ZOMBIELAND sequel may never actually happen, Emma Stone isn't finished with her personal crusade against the shambling undead.

Stone has been offered the lead in the adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's mashup PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES, which has been desperately clawing its way to life for ages.

The Lionsgate project now has Craig Gillespie (LARS AND THE REAL GIRL, FRIGHT NIGHT remake) directing, after burning through David O. Russell, Mike White and a list of possible replacements that once included David Slade, Neil Marshall and Mike Newell.

Scarlett Johansson, Anne Hathaway, Mia Wasikowska and Natalie Portman (who is still producing) have all previously been rumored or linked to the role of heroine Elizabeth Bennet, who in this zombified Austen remix will split her attention between romantic interest Mr. Darcy and her family's war against hordes of flesh-eating rotters.

Stone will be seen a lot this summer in CRAZY STUPID LOVE, FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS and THE HELP, and next year as Peter Parker's first love Gwen Stacy in the wallcrawler's reboot AMAZING SPIDER-MAN.

Extra Tidbit: Dig Emma more as a redhead or a (purportedly natural) blonde?

Red Head/Brunette

I just rewatched Zombieland last night and saw Easy-A not too long ago. I really enjoy watching her both as an actress and a physical attraction. I've seen the pics of her as a blonde and it just doesn't match up with her features. I hope the new Spider Man bombs big time...they shoulda just gave him a cameo in Avengers. That woulda been more than enough. I just think they obliterated the character.

I wanna see some outside-the-square casting. Like, I dunno, Gary Busey in drag. At least, okay just picture it, Gary Busey as Mr. Darcy.

Red head for sure!

However I do think Bryce Dallas Howard is hotter blonde. Both of them can pull off either color.

This

is relevant to my interests. No idea how well Emma Stone does a British accent, though.

Extra Tidbit

Redhead! Forever redhead! The blonde suits her for Gwen Stacy, but in pics like the one above or for various red carpet events she does not look nearly as good as she has in various shades of red.
In my humble opinion, of course.
But as you can see by the green, I am hip to this news. I am a really big fan of hers.
