hindustantimes.com:Gossip Girl star Blake Lively has been offered to play Elizabeth Bennett in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.
Lively, 24, could be starring in this Craig Gillespie directed film, which has been turned down by several A-listers like Natalie Portman, Anne Hathaway and Scarlett Johansson,
reported Ace Showbiz.
Before Lively, Gillespie had reportedly offered the part to Emma Stone and Mia Wasikowska. However, none of them said yes to the offer.
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is adapted from Seth Grahame-Smith’s novel that combines Jane Austen’s classic 1813 novel Pride and Prejudice with elements of modern zombie fiction.
The story is set in the era when zombies roam the English countryside. The movie will see Bennett as a feisty heroine who is distracted from her quest to eradicate the zombie menace by the arrival of the arrogant Mr Darcy.
