Problems are surrounding the film adaptation for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. David O. Russell was set to direct but has since vacated that seat due to scheduling conflicts. He is moving on to work on a movie titled Old St. Louis. That has slowed down the movie enough that Natalie Portman has also moved on to other projects because of her busy schedule but she will continue to produce this movie. So begins the rumor mill on who will fill in these key positions as they adapt this very popular horror novel.
