Natalie Portman should fight zombies.

Jane Austen Week continues here at FSR…

I know, I know. Unsubstantiated casting rumors are more common than movie blogs, and they should all be considered bullshit until proven otherwise. DiCaprio is Captain America! Ryan Gosling is the Green Lantern! Robert Downey Jr. is Iron Man! All bullshit. But once in a while a rumor comes along that you really wish would turn out to be true. And by you I mean me, and by rumor I mean…

Production Weekly is reporting that Natalie Portman is attached to the upcoming film based on the as yet unpublished novel “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.” The book retains roughly 70% of Jane Austen’s original text, but adds a zombie attack and Mr. Darcy teaching the Bennet girls ninja skills to fight back the undead horde. Portman is fantastic, talented, sexy, and would look quite nice in a bloody corset.

Shocktillyoudrop is already refuting the rumor, citing an unnamed source reportedly close to the production as saying the announcement is incorrect. “Premature,” says the mole. “No offers or handshakes of any kind yet – other people circling.” Interesting choice of words there… he doesn’t say anything definitive about Portman, just that others are also interested and no deals have been made yet. So there’s still hope…

What do you think? Isn’t it about time Portman kicked ass onscreen (in a cool movie)?
