They might be undead creatures who just rot and moan a lot, but believe it or not, the world of 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies' is ever-changing. Last year, the tone was set for one heck of an interesting creature feature when Natalie Portman was to star as a Jane Austen version of a zombie hunter while David O. Russell ('I Heart Huckabees') was set to direct. As two talents known for offering up surprising twists, the combination was sure to give us something interesting ... as long as it lasted. Alas, they both dropped out.

But wait -- have no fear. Although reports of Russell's departure suggested that the project was dead, there's now a feverish kick to repopulate the piece with new talent, which could mean that this new incarnation will star Scarlett Johansson and Bradley Cooper.
