It's been known for a while that Seth Grahame-Smith's bestseller "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" is making its way to the silver screen. Eventually.

After going through a slew of eligible ladies, it seems casting the role of undead-fighter, Lizzie Bennet is more challenging than it seems.

Now, according to Twitch, the most recent contender for the title role is none other than the bubbly, blonde Blake Lively.

I know what you Lit majors are thinking, What?! Not Jane?! and while nothing is set in Stone (get it? That's Emma's last name), we can't help but wonder how the "Gossip Girl" beauty wear the lead in Craig Gillespie's film.
