In what’s quickly becoming the longest search for a director ever, a couple of new names have cropped up as contenders to helm Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. In addition to the aforementioned Craig Gillespie (Lars and the Real Girl), Heat Vision reports that the author of the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies novel himself, Seth Grahame-Smith, is in consideration to co-direct the flick with partner David Katzenberg (son of DreamWorks Animation guru Jeffrey).
Grahame-Smith and Katzenberg previously created and wrote the MTV comedy The Life and Times of RJ Berger. Grahame-Smith is currently writing the screenplay to the film adaptation of his other “history + supernatural” tome Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter in addition to scripting Dark Shadows for Tim Burton. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has had a very, very large number of directors attached/rumored/de-tached/in talks over the last few months, so I think I speak for everyone when I say please, pick someone already.
