Lionsgate have confirmed that Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has finally locked a director Mike White [Year of the Dog] will helm the project based on Seth Grahame-Smith's "re-interpretation" of Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice. The film features the literary heroine Elizabeth Bennet up against hordes of zombies. White has previous experience with the undead as part of a cameo appearance in Zombieland.
White replaces director David O. Russell, who left the project last month. No cast members are confirmed at this time, but Natalie Portman is still said to be producing.
