The bad news is that Natalie Portman recently backed out of the leading role in the upcoming film based on Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. The good news is Scarlett Johansson is now rumored to be considering the role. We’re expecting her performace to be some combination between her roles in The Other Boleyn Girl and Iron Man 2 — holy hot zombie-killing action!
In addition to killing zombies in P&P&Z, Johansson might soon be playing a zombie on screen. The actress is also rumored to be attached to the film adaptation of Breathers: A Zombie’s Lament. In the film, Johansson would presumably play Rita, the main character’s zombie love interest and attendee of Undead Anonymous. Killer!
To celebrate these awesome occurrences, we share with you this video of Scarlett being photoshopped into a zombie:
