After building momentum with Natalie Portman and director David O. Russell in 2009, the adaptation of writer Seth Grahame-Smith‘s popular mash-up novel Pride and Prejudice and Zombies slowly sunk back down into the grave. Over the past few years, the project has had a rotating ensemble of potential leads, from Scarlett Johansson to Mia Wasikowska to Anne Hathaway. The project looked as good as dead — that is until today, when Pride and Prejudice and Zombies with Mortal Instruments star Lily Collins joined the Jane Austen-inspired horror flick.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Collins is attached to star in the long-gestating hybrid under the direction of Burr Steers (17 Again, Charlie St. Cloud). With Walking Dead topping TV ratings charts and smaller genre movies like Warm Bodies making bank at the box office, zombies are still a hot topic in Hollywood. Pairing rising star Collins with the brain-eating beasts is a no brainer.

Seeing as the book cover of Pride and Prejudice and Zombiesis even more famous than the text inside, we had to wonder: does Collins have the right look for rotting flesh? Judge for yourself:
