PP&Z Loses Lead

   

Blake Lively is the latest in a string of actresses to turn down the chance to play Elizabeth Bennett in the film version of the grandmother of all mashups, Pride And Prejudice And Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith (Quirk Books, 2009).

She follows in the retreating footsteps of Natalie Portman, Emma Stone, Scarlett Johansson, Mia Wasikowska and Rooney Mara.

The move caused TotalFilm.com to ask “Who wants to be in this thing?

Meanwhile, another of Grahame-Smith’s mashups, Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter, is in post-production and scheduled for release on June 22, 2012. Mary Elizabeth Winstead, who plays Mary Todd Lincoln in the movie, recently told The Playlist that the fimmakers worked hard to get the period details and the historical elements correct.
