emma stoneSomeone ring the Good Decision Bell! We don’t have a Good Decision Bell? We should get on that.

Anyway, Emma Stone has been offered the lead in Pride & Prejudice & Zombies from director David O. Russell, err, I mean, Mike White, err, I mean, Craig Gillespie! Can I get an Amen?! What do you mean we don’t have a gospel choir to echo my thoughts? Jeeze, no bell, no gospel choir, what kind of shindig are we running here? Stone also starred in another zombie flick, the amazing Zombieland, where she kicked some major undead butt. But I don’t really see the problem with that, considering actors often appear in other movies that are in the same genre as their previous works. No one complained when Chris Evans got Captain America after Fantastic Four, but it may just be that we’re all trying to forget Fantastic Four ever happened.

Back to Stone! She’ll be kicking ass as Elizabeth Bennet while resisting Mr. Darcy's charms and her casting makes me extremely excited about the project. I tried to read the book, but honestly, it was a little too "Pride and Prejudice" for me and not enough "and Zombies." And I really can’t stand Jane Austen. Sound the alarm! We don’t have alarm, either? Okay, I’m fine with that.
