Apparently, the role of Elizabeth Bennett, Zombie Fighter, is still open.

According to Deadline, Emma Stone has passed on the role in 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies,' although they don't quote any sources or give any reason why Stone decided it wasn't for her.

(Our guess, she's reached her zombie quota. Or she didn't want to attempt a British accent.)

Other names floating around in the blogosphere to take over the part -- that is, merely wishful thinking by fans -- Emily Blunt, Abbie Cornish ('Limitless'), Natalie Dormer ('The Tudors') or Gemma Arterton ('Prince of Persia'). meta charset="utf-8" />

As far as the haughty Mr. Darcy, wish lists include Bradley Cooper and James McAvoy, who are probably both too busy to take this one on.

No word on casting for any of the zombies yet.
