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!

We haven't heard anything about the film adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies for quite some time, but now it looks like wheels are moving again!
We've just learned that Fright Night writing/directing team Marti Noxon and Craig Gillespie will be teaming up once again for Zombies.
The Fighter director David O. Russell wrote the script before leaving the project, and now Noxon will rework it before they move forward with production.
For those of you who haven't read the book, the story "retells Jane Austen’s classic tale about the romance between the independent Elizabeth Bennet and the snooty Mr. Darcy"…but there are zombies involved.
Sounds like it'll be a while before this movie actually starts production, but we'll keep our eyes peeled! Should def be a fun flick!
Are U excited to hear that wheels are moving once again on Pride and Prejudice and Zombies?
