The Dead Will Rise

It was 6 and a half years from the time we first got an inkling about Natalie’s directorial debut, A Tale Of Love And Darkness, to the time that filming began. Well, rumours are once again kicking up that Pride And Prejudice And Zombies is gearing up for production. It’s only been 5 years since the first announcement so I guess this project is still fresh faced. As a reminder, Natalie was set to star, David O Russell wrote the script and was going to direct. He pulled out and went on to direct 3 Oscar nominated films in a row. Natalie then dropped out as well but stayed on as producer.

Several directors came on board and swiftly departed but the last names linked, Burr Steers directing and Lily Collins starring, seem to still be on board. The report doesn’t offer much in the way of details but at this point I’m really struggling to give a shit. When Natalie was starring and Russell was directing…that would have been interesting. They started A list and have been down shifting to where we are now.

Anyone still interested in this project at all?
