Earlier this week we reported Emma Stone, the fabulous red head whose turning up in dozens of movies nowadays, was offered the role of zombie-slaying Elizabeth Bennet in Craig Gillespie‘s Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Well, guess what? She’s turned it down. Apparently the Zombieland star doesn’t want to be typecast as a kicker of undead ass.
According to Deadline the offer never even made it to the negotiations stage, so Miss Stone probably wasn’t even interested in the 19 century period piece with zombies. Here’s hoping they get this role cast soon, PPZ has been hovering around in pre-production hell for some time now. It’s a bit of a shame because I thought Stone would have been perfect. Then again, I thought the same about Natalie Portman. Who would you like to see get cast as the zombie killing heroine?
