Zombieland and Easy A actress Emma Stone has been offered the lead role in troubled book adaptation Pride And Prejudice And Zombies.

The film has long been struggling in pre-production, with numerous directors considering, then dumping the project.

Stone has now been officially offered the role of zombie-butchering heroine Elizabeth Bennet in the adap of Seth Grahame-Smith’s book, which puts a spin on Jane Austen’s classic text.

Previously, Anne Hathaway, Scarlett Johansson and Mia Wasikowska were all being considered as replacements for Natalie Portman, who left the role last year.

Pride... is now being brought to the screen by Fright Night remake duo Craig Gillespie and Marti Noxon, the former directing and the latter giving the script a buff.

If Zombieland 's anything to go by, Stone's already proficient at killing the undead - we wonder how she'd handle it in a corset.
