James McAvoy is reportedly set to star as Mr. Darcy in a new horror adaptation of JANE AUSTEN classic Pride And Prejudice.
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, a new film based on Seth Grahame-Smith's book, adds flesh-eating monsters to Austen's period novel.
Scarlett Johansson has been linked to the role of Elizabeth Bennet, and Scottish actor MCAvoy is in talks to play her leading love interest, according to Britain's Daily Record.
Austen's classic novel was previously revived in a 2005 version starring Keira Knightley, who won an Oscar nomination for her portrayal of the leading lady.
