We think he'd have a lot of fun with this!

Sources are reporting that James McAvoy is being considered for the lead role in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

If cast, James would take the role or Mr. Darcy in the reinvented world where zombies factor into the Jane Austen epic.

As for his leading lady, sources are pegging Anne Hathaway for the role of Elizabeth Bennett.

What - no Keira Knightly? Or are zombies to low brow for her?

Whatever. We would love to see Anne & James team up again in another take on Jane Austen lure.

Wouldn't U?

    Knightley, Perez. There is an 'e' in there. Maybe she doesn't know about the project or they haven't went to her or maybe they want to go with someone else. Don't assume she turned her nose up at it, she doesn't have to do it because she was in the 2005 movie. Some days Perez, I wonder about you.

    That is the most ridiculous idea for a movie in the history of time.

    I'd rather Anne Hathaway be Elizabeth Bennet. Keira Knightley was horrible, but the entirety of that pride and prejudice remake was just so very bad. And this is coming from a die-hard Jane Austen fan.
    I still wish Natalie Portman stuck by Elizabeth though. Oh well.
    I'm pretty content with James McAvoy as the sexy Mr. Darcy. Though in all wackiness I'd love to see someone like Brandon Routhe as Darcy in this.

    Re: Chinchillala – Anne has a certain comedic je-ne-sais-quoi that would be an asset for something as crazy as PnPnZ. McAvoy is always good too.

    I can`t wait for the movie! but anne hatheway (5`8) is taller than james Mcavoy (5`7) might be a little weird..Mr Darcy shouldn`t me shorter than Ms. Bennett. On the other hand nathalie portman is 5`3…. or just get a taller leading man that is not as short and small as McAvoy. you know…a girl needs at least a sense of safety in the midst of a zombie epidemic…

    I LOVE Anne Hathaway, and I think she could pull off Elizabeth Bennett, however I think that she is too old to play that character. Kiera Knightley would of course be perfect, and we haven't seen her in a while, but she WAS in the original Pride and Prejudice movie, so I wouldn't expect her to want to go there again. This would be an awesome movie either way.
