Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has faced much adversity in the attempt to get it from page to screen. Natalie Portman dropped out as lead (though will stay on to produce) and there has been a merry-go-round of directors attached. Lionsgate has named a new helmer - find out who after the jump.
Craig Gillespie is Lionsgate's choice to direct the adaption of Seth Grahame-Smith's novel. Don't get too excited just yet - contracts have not been signed (not that that seems to matter). Gillespie just wrapped on the Fright Night remake for DreamWorks.
