Well, she's certainly not Natalie Portman, but give her the benefit of the doubt!

So long as she can do a decent British accent!

Blake Lively is the latest actress to reportedly be offered the lead role of Elizabeth Bennett in the upcoming film adaptation of Pride & Prejudice & Zombies, which is being directed by Craig Gillespie!

According to him:

“I’m hoping to be shooting in the beginning of next year, so we’ll see. David O. Russell wrote a great script, but I actually just wrote a rewrite with [‘Fright Night’ screenwriter] Marti Noxon and we’re just going after cast.”

Nice! All three of them seem more than competent in adapting the hilarious novel, and to be fair, Lively has definitely shown some range in certain projects, so here's hoping that if she accepts, Gillespie can get an ass-kicking, solid performance out of her!

What do U think?? Should Blake get the role??

    what an absolute shit idea for a film!



  2. 2

  3. 3

    ewww no!!!! she is no lizzie bennet

    Re: UruvielNaomi – Me too. But even more so, Caroline Bingley.



  5. 5

    If she gets the lead, I will NOT see this movie. She can't act!



  6. 6

    bad move!!

    I actually really like Blake Lively, and I absolutely LOVE Pride & Prejudice & Zombies, but I just don't see this as a good fit. I thought Natalie Portman would be acceptable as Lizzie Bennet, and I thought Emma Stone would be fantastic, but not Blake. I agree, though, that she could be great as Jane or Caroline. THere has to be someone better, because she's not kickass enough. I would rather see someone like Jennifer Lawrence have that part, or maybe Lily Collins.

  9. 9

    UUUU no no no no FAIL. Bad move she is no Lizzie Bennet she is more of a Jane and as an other reader said a Caroline Bennet.

    Riight, because she was hired for her "acting" skills. Jeez, how many blowjobs did she give the casting person just to get this role?
    She's only being hired to bring in the fanboys. End of story.

    Also being linked to Leonardo Dicaprio doesn't hurt either. She has "connections" now..



  12. 12

    Well, she already released nude photos for her last movie, what will she do right before this one comes out, release a sex tape??



  13. 13

    Re: rosebud99 – so true!

    ahh look at that face… what a beauty…



  16. 16

    Whats pride and prejudice and zombies?? never heard of it…although I love zombie movies… this movie sounds way low budget …so with her acting yes she would suit the role.



  17. 17

    Wow. She held her own in The Town. You better deliver girl!

    This chick looked like a freak before all of her plastic surgery and dental work. She had teeth coming out like daggers from all directions. It would have made her a perfect candidate for a zombie if she had left herself natural. As for her acting, I really liked her in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. A small role in The Town does not make a great actress. She is not a leading lady. As the old Hollywood story goes…f*cking her way to the top.
