Undead — PP&Z

Pride Prejudice ZombiesWe thought that the poor box office showing for the adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith’s Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (Hachette/Grand Central, 2012) had finally killed off thoughts of a film based on the grandmother of the mashup genre, Pride And Prejudice And Zombies, also by Grahame-Smith (Quirk Books), but The Hollywood Reporter announces that Lily Collins is now set to star with Burt Steers directing.

Collins follows a string of actresses that have been rumored or announced for the role (Natalie Portman — who is still attached as a producer —  Emma Stone, Anne Hathaway, Scarlett Johansson, Mia Wasikowska and Rooney Mara). Steers is the fourth director attached to the project.

The mashup craze seems to have run its course, but zombies still live.
