Word has it that Emma Stone, who will be playing Gwen Stacy in the reboot of the Spider-Man films, has been offered the role of Elizabeth Bennet in Lionsgate’s Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. It’s not a bad casting choice; she’s done well in her past films, Easy A and Superbadand she has zombie slaying experience from Zombieland.

I personally haven’t read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies albeit having read the original Austen book. I’m too lazy to basically read it again, although I do wish that Pride and Prejudice and Zombies had been published before I read the snore that is Pride and Prejudice (without zombies). The essential premise is that it’s an old-timey love story… WITH ZOMBIES.

The offer hasn’t been confirmed as of yet, so it is not official that Emma Stone will be taking up the role of Elizabeth Bennet.
