'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies' Gets Its Director?
"Gillespie has been a frontrunner on the Lionsgate project since Mike White dropped out. But several other candidates were considered, including the author and his partner, David Katzenberg. I'm told that the other aspirants have been informed that Gillespie will be getting the gig and that he'll begin negotiating soon."
Gillespie's previous directing efforts include Lars and the Real Girl, Mr. Woodcock and the upcoming remake of Fright Night.
