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??
