Natalie Portman and original director David O. Russell may have gone AWOL, but Lionsgate have finally bagged themselves a replacement director for Pride And Prejudice And Zombies with Mike White.
Most recognisable as Jack Black’s wimpy roommate in School Of Rock (which he also wrote), White will helm the sweeping period (zombie) action.
A cheeky, horror-threaded update of Jane Austen’s classic romance, Pride And Prejudice And Zombies throws the undead into the mix for a horror comedy twist.
Still no word who’s going to be taking on the role of Elizabeth Bennett, though Scarlett Johansson has long been rumoured to be waiting in the wings.
Think White’s a good choice? Or wish Russell was still involved? Tell us below…
