Lily Collins: 'Pride Prejudice & Zombies' as Elizabeth Bennet?

Lily Collins is in negotiations to play the lead role of Elizabeth Bennet in the upcoming film Pride Prejudice and Zombies, according to Variety.

The 24-year-old actress would work alongside director Burr Steers (17 Again, Charlie St. Cloud) in the adaptation of Seth Grahame Smith’s mash-up of the literary classic by Jane Austen.

Natalie Portman was originally set to star with David O. Russell as the director, but the project got shelved after the script took too long to develop.

    Great for Lily. She has said that Lizzy Bennet is one of her favourite literary characters. She’ll make a beautiful, smart and kickarse Lizzy Bennet.

    @Mnahshs: Natlaie Portman is still onboard as a producer, it was her production company that originally bought the rights and she has remained involved since she was originally set to star so she would have been instrumental in Lily being offered the lead.

    Why not Lily? If the movie is anything like the book it’s very tongue-in-cheek, very out there. They’re not filming Pride and Prejudice. They’re filming Pride and Prejudice and Zombies! Why does anyone think they need an Academy Award winning actress for that. And Natalie Portman is the producer … so she has a big say over who is cast. Lily will do just fine.

    I don’t think this movie would do very well. The Lincoln one involving vampires was so ridiculous.
