Emma Stone wanted for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

June 23rd, 2011

Emma Stone has been offered a part in 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies'.

The 'Easy A' actress - who recently completed filming on forthcoming Marvel comic prequel 'The Amazing Spider-Man' with Andrew Garfield - is wanted for the role of Elizabeth Bennett after Oscar-winning star Natalie Portman dropped out.

The movie is based on the book of the same name by Seth Grahame-Smith and takes the traditional Jane Austen novel and adds the un-dead into the mix of romance and drama.

David O. Russell and Mike White have also both dropped out of directing the film, although Natalie is still attached to produce.

Grahame-Smith and Marti Noxon are currently revising the script.

Emma, 22, first moved from TV into films in 2007's 'Superbad', and has since earned comedy acclaim in movies including 'The House Bunny' and 'Easy A', about a girl who has to learn to deal with rumours about her sex life which she has started.

This year she will appear in 'Friends with Benefits' with Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis and 'Crazy, Stupid, Love'.
