Pride and Prejudice and Zombies finds another new director

04.18.2011

What, like it's hard to mix Jane Austen with zombies? You directors are all a bunch of pansies.

Just kidding, this sort of sounds impossible to pull off, and PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES has already gone through two different directors that I know of, and has finally landed a new one willing to take up the challenge.

That man would be Craig Gillespie, the guy doing the FRIGHT NIGHT remake where Colin Farrell is a vampire. He also has MR. WOODCOCK and LARS AND THE REAL GIRL to his name, along with a host of episodes of The United States of Tara.

The studio seem to be onboard with the new choice:

"We are so excited to have Craig Gillespie on board this film," said Alli Shearmur, Lionsgate president of Motion Picture Production. "His sensibility spans from genre-bending horror to elegant character-driven comedy, which is perfect for this movie."

Yes, the elegant character driven comedy of MR. WOODCOCK. Errr, maybe he was talking about that other one.

This doesn't have a cast yet, but it does finally have a director, for now. What are your thoughts?

Extra Tidbit: I'm on zombie and vampire overload. Can someone please invent a new monster so we don't have to keep recycling?

"Mr. Woodcock" sucked, but "Lars And The Real Girl" is a thing of beauty, so I am torn. Let's see if "Fright Night" can push me one way or the other.

I got no interest in this anymore, because no matter who directs, it will be cut down to PG-13. Just watch.

I can't wait for this! Wasn't Natalie Portman attached to play the lead at one point? I would like to see some more werewolf movies. That would be nice.

Speaking of Craig Gillespie, it's BEYOND time for a damn Fright Night trailer.

Lars and the Real Girl is a great, underrated movie with a brilliant Ryan Gosling. So that alone gets a green box.

Is he the best director for this? Probably not. Is he capable? Yes he is.

And wasn't Bradley Cooper attatched to this film at one point? Cause if so, I would like to see that happen. Or perhaps Ryan Gosling if he were to be available.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, Edgar Wright would have been perfect for this.
