Lionsgate is currently on the hunt for a new director and actress to replace David O' Russell and Natalie Portman on the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies film project. It was recently revealed that both Scarlett Johansson and Bradley Cooper could end up starring in the film. But since then Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland) and Tilda Swinton ( Adaptation, Constantine) have been added to the list of potential actresses.

It was also revealed previously that David Slade (30 Days of Night) was in the running to direct the film. Now of course there are a ton of other directors that would like to take a crack at the project. Those directors include Mike Newell (Prince of Persia) Neil Marshall (Doomsday), Jonathan Demme (Silence of the Lambs), Matt Reeves (Let Me In, Cloverfield), Mike White (Year of the Dog) and the Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs team of Phil Lord and Chris Miller.

So pretty much every director that isn't working right now is trying to jump on board the project. This will actually be some interesting news if the list was narrowed down a bit more. I'm rooting for David Slade on this one. Who would you like to see direct it?
