Blake Lively could be in Craig Gillespie's Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
Posted by: Zack Bruce
I feel like Blake Lively is riding the line of stardom. She just needs one certain leading role to take her to the next level. I really thought THE TOWN would do a lot for her and it did in its own way. It led to a part like Carol Ferris in GREEN LANTERN. I believe that she will eventually get to that certain point in her career but for now she’s just on the verge.
Now the actress has been offered a part in PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES. Yes, eight million other actresses have already been offered the part of leading lady Elizabeth Bennet only to turn it down. I’m looking at you, Emma Stone. It’s rumored that Lively took a meeting with the director of the film, Craig Gillespie (FRIGHT NIGHT). No word on if any of this actually went down. I can see it being the real deal though.
Natalie Portman will serve as a producer on the film. Maybe she can persuade Lively to take the role.
