Emma Stone, staying true to her Zombieland roots, is up for the lead character Elizabeth Bennet in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

This long-delayed adaptation of the Seth Grahame-Smith novel is now being directed by Fright Night's Craig Gillespie. Lionsgate, who is behind the production, had no comment on the offer currently out to Emma Stone.

No production start date has been set yet. It is unlikely that the movie will be finished in time for its originally intended 2012 release date.
