What The Hell Is Going On With This Movie?!!
In what should be a sign of a curse, Mike White has dropped out of the director's chair for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Apparently, White had an obligation to HBO that he couldn't get out of.
"I loved the project and looked forward to working with Lionsgate," White told Deadline. "Unfortunately, the timing could not be worked out. I wish them the best with the movie."
Lionsgate is immediately searching for a replacement for White, who was a replacement for David O. Russell, who reportedly left behind a "strong script." So strong, in fact, that no one, not even Russell himself, will stick around to direct it.
Seriously, someone make this already.
