Craig Gillespie exits Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

The “Poltergeist” of period-zombie flicks, “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” – which just can’t seem to tie a director, let alone a star, down – has lost director Craig Gillespie. The “Fright Night” helmer was the latest in a long line of filmmakers who had briefly attached themselves to the feature adaptation of the Seth Grahame-Smith novel.

Deadline broke the news of Gillespie’s exit :

Gillespie, who directed the critically acclaimed art house film Lars and the Real Girl and followed with Fright Night, came on to the film after Mike White left. White had replaced David O. Russell, who wrote the script. The split here was amicable, but had to do with things like who to cast in the film. Casting has been tough on this one, and I wouldn’t be surprised if Lionsgate doesn’t look for not only a director but a package from an agency that includes cast as well.

Director/Actor package hey!? Hmmm… Uwe Boll and Kristanna Loken, maybe? Oh! Oh! How about Milla Jovovich and Paul W.S Anderson!? (Heck, don’t be surprised if they’re already in the mix)
