Mike White Leaves “Prejudice & Zombies”

Mike White is no longer set to direct Lionsgate’s “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” due to scheduling conflicts reports Variety.

This adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith’s offbeat novel mixes Jane Austen’s 1813 classic “Pride and Prejudice,” with zombies and is set in an alternate version of 19th-century England.

White (“Year of the Dog”) had signed on in November to direct. He follows in the footsteps of David O. Russell who dropped out of helming last year.
