|Craig Gillespie & Mr. Will-W. - TIFF 2007|
Although Natalie Portman will be busy being a Mom this next while, this won’t stop her from being involved as a Producer of her upcoming Project, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Portman initially was believed to star in the adaptation of the 2009 Parody Novel of the same title by Seth Grahame-Smith for Lionsgate Films. As reported by Variety Magazine, the part now will be going to Easy A Star Emma Stone who quickly has found herself catapulted to the A-list over the past two years.
Craig Gillespie who directed TIFF 2007 hit Lars and the Real Girl and upcoming Disney Comedy-Horror Fright Night with Colin Farrell, is attached to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. I did meet the friendly Gillespie here in Toronto while he was here for Lars (only his second Feature Film) and despite being from Australia, he actually sounded more American after having moved to New York when he was 19. A Film to keep a tab on - although it won't be out until 2013.
