Zombies, again?

Emma Stone's star has risen quickly since her role in 2009's 'Zombieland' -- now she'll be fighting the pesky undead once again, this time in a corset.

She's just been cast in 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies,' where she'll play Elizabeth Bennett, who's not only got to worry about haughty Mr. Darcy (yet to be cast), but fending off zombies.

Craig Gillespie (of the upcoming 'Fright Night' remake) is directing. The book's author, Seth Grahame-Smith, is co-writing the script with Marti Noxon of 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' fame.

Natalie Portman is producing through her Handsomecharlie Films, along with Richard Kelly's Darko Films.

Stone, who also made a splash in 'Easy A,' will be seen next in 'The Amazing Spider-Man' opposite Andrew Garfield, and in a more serious role in 'The Help.'
