Nobody Wants to Star in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

Nobody Wants to Star in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

Whomp! Whomp! Time to add the name of yet another Hollywood actress who doesn’t want to star in director Craig Gillespie’s “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies”.

First Natalie Portman who is producing the film, turned down to star in the film, then Emma Stone, Mia Wasikowska and Scarlett Johansson also passed on the part and now “Gossip Girl” actress Blake Lively has said hell to the no on the role. It was a couple of weeks ago that Lively was the latest actress up for the role, but her busy lifestyle as Serena Van Der Woodsen she seems to busy with her Gossip Girl and other film roles to bother with the undead.

Is the role riddled with the pox or something? Nobody wants to take on the lead female role of Elizabeth Bennet and who knows when this film will get made at this point.

Variety’s Justin Kroll confirmed the role by tweeting the news:

Casting update, news broke a couple weeks back that Blake Lively was offered lead in PRIDE PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES. She has officially passed

“Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” is based on the best-selling novel by Seth Graheme-Smith and is a reworking of the Jane Austen classic.

Who’ll be next to say no?
