Stone offered Lead in "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies."

Emma Stone has already faced off against hordes of brain-munching undead in Zombieland and it looks like now the actress will even more firmly cement her place as queen of the zed-heads by picking up the lead role in the movie adaptation of the boobs 'n' bonnets 'n' zombies mash-up Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

Elizabeth Bennet, meet Emma Stone.

The movie, directed by Craig Gillespie and produced by Lionsgate, takes the much -loved classic Jane Austen tale and slaps on a heavy dose Romero-esque action.

Our eternal heroine, Elizabeth Bennet’s quest for love and independence is further complicated by an outbreak of a deadly virus that means the dead just won;' stay dead and they have an insatiable appetite for human flesh.

Stone has just finished filming her role as Gwen Stacy in The Amazing Spider-Man, which hits cinemas next summer.


  1. A good choice. I just hope the film is better than the book, which did not impress me at all.

  2. Fingers crossed. The dial has certainly drifted to the 'this could work' end of the scale.
