Emma Stone in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies?

Emma Stone as Elizabeth Bennet?Variety reports that Emma Stone has been offered the role of Elizabeth Bennet in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. She’d replace Natalie Portman, who is staying on as a producer, but likely has other things on her mind (namely, her new-born son).

Intriguingly enough, Stone was recently seen in Zombieland; is she carving out a niche among the brain-eating undead?

Once that role is cast, attention will be turned to the casting of Mr. Darcy; the two actors most mentioned are James McAvoy and Bradley Cooper. Thoughts?

I didn't realize they were turning this into a movie! Yay.

I like Bradley Cooper, but I don't know how I'd feel about him as Darcy. I loved James McAvoy in Becoming Jane... and pretty much everything else he's been in.

Love love love Emma Stone in Easy A. She has fantastic comedic timing, so I'd be interested in seeing her in this movie, even though I wasn't all that impressed with the book after the first few chapters.

@DyslexicSquirrel, I am so with you about James McAvoy.

@redline -- I just don't know about the whole zombie thing. How could such a thing happen to our Divine Miss A?
