Our Gossip Girl star has been offered a role in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. The movie though seems to be on hitatus; it still has Natalie Portman as producer but she has long since backed out of the lead role.
Now its third director, Craig Gillespie (who replaced Mike White, who replaced David O’Russell) has met with Blake Lively for a potential role.
According to Twitch, Gillespie has met Lively and offered her the lead role of Elizabeth Bennett, a role that has been turned down by Mia Wasikowska, Scarlett Johansson, and Emma Stone.
Despite her busy schedule with Gossip Girl, Blake has proven she can act, we saw her in Green Lantern and Ben Affleck’s bank robbery drama The Town. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies though doesn’t offer her a good add on her CV. And she might as well walk away as her the rest did.
