Craig Gillespie Hired to Direct 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies'

Much like World War Z, the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies film project has had its fair share of shakeups. In the latest development, Lionsgate has hired director Craig Gillespie to helm the adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's literary mashup that introduced zombies into the fiction of Jane Austen and spawned two original stories by Steven Hockensmith.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Natalie Portman is still producing the film adaptaion through her handsomecharlie films banner.

Well, I say, "La!" to the news. I very much look forward to seeing the Bennett sisters come alive on the big screen to fight the unruly dead of Regency England.
