    This role it’s perfect for Emma WATSON. #JustSaying

  • Kyrsten

    I am so excited for this! Emma Stone is an amazing actress and I love love LOVE Zombie movies!

  • Jon

    Even though I’m looking forward to this (Loved the book and love Emma) I’m starting to feel like Emma Stone is everywhere these days. As I said, I’m a fan and she’s very talented, but I’m kinda worried that she’ll become one of those actresses that keep popping up everywhere and people get tired of them.

  • @Wes

    But Emma Watson can’t act. Her eyebrow wiggle will ruin the character.

  • Q4

    She needs a speech coach. Her acting is nothing special, rather forgettable.

  • Jimm

    I would think putting out ten quality movies a year is good. It shows that she is talented. Now attending award shows just to have your picture taken is bad and overexposure.

  • Me

    I understand her just fine. The way she lisp is kind of cute, actually.
    The movie is a comedy anyways, and she has amazing comedic timing. Her accent doesn’t have to be perfect either because everything is tongue in cheek.

  • Lily

    I believe Emma stone is such a perfect role for this movie. I haven’t read the book but if it has to deal with zombie then I believe Emma WILL deliver this role. Not only is she a funny and very talented actress, she also looks bad-ass in zombie movies. Remember Zombieland?

  • Ashley

    I really liked the Keira knightley version better this one looks to scary

  • LMAO

    @Jimm: 10 movies a year is OVEREXPOSURE. I think I’d scream seeing ANY actor in 10 movies in a year….imagine 10 diffferent promos on TV shows, commercials, trailers, 10 premieres, etc. Ugh. People would hate her after that.

    i could see her doing…it

  • offtheproperty

    Are we to understand that she is perceived by some as capable of being of that highest genus of actress — the funny AND beautiful girl?
    Cool !

  • Alex

    Interesting chose.would love to see how she does in the movie.she was great in zombieland.

  • Bella

    well shes one of my fav actresses since i saw her on easy A so i think she can do it have an amazin potencial hope someday could work with her…

  • JoelKinnaman

    I can hardly contain my excitement. I’m really looking forward to seeing this. And might I add Emma stone, just splendid.

    PS. I see the thumb’s down fairy is active today?

  • maricruz

    I love pride and predjudice and zombies it would totally be AWSOME if Emma stone will play Elizabeth and if not I’m still psyched to for this film!

  • Bree

    OMG YES!! If she was to ever take on the role of Ella Enchanted (one that actually FOLLOWS the book), I’ll die of happiness.

  • ME

    isn’t Natalie Portman supposed to be doing this?

  • @18

    Natalie is co-producing. I think she’s taking time off of acting to be a mom.

  • Fran

    If the movie ends up being like all the other “fun” and “crazy” remakes I’ll be devastated; Pride and Prejudice is my favorite book ever.
