Pride and Prejudice and Zombies will probably never come together.  But don’t worry, Hollywood will never stop making different versions of Pride and Prejudice.  According to Variety the next one, Lost in Austen, will be directed by Nora Ephron.  The modern take is based on the BBC miniseries of the same name written by Guy Andrews: “The story follows a modern New York girl transported into the middle of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice.”

Andrea Giannetti and Hannah Minghella will oversee the project for Sony, who are excited to get back in business with Ephron after their last collaboration Julia & Julia grossed $130 million worldwide.  Ephron is also attached to a Peggy Lee biopic with Reese Witherspoon at the lead.  Watch the trailer for the original Lost in Austen after the jump.

When Amanda Price (Jemima Rooper) discovers a secret passage in her bathroom, she enters the fictional world of her favorite novel, Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice in this comedy from director Dan Zeff. Soon her presence changes the story that she knows so well, and Amanda must correct everything before it’s too late. [Fandango]
