Print this article It looks as though the highly anticipated "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" is now without a director. According to Entertainment Weekly, Mike White has stepped down from the project.
The news source reports that White's decision stems solely from a scheduling conflict, as he is already slated to direct the new HBO series "Enlightenment."
"I loved the project and looked forward to working with Lionsgate," White said in a statement. "Unfortunately, the timing could not be worked out. I wish them the best with the movie."
Although White has directing experience under his belt - he helmed the 2007 comedy-drama "Year of the Dog" - he is perhaps best known for his screenwriting skills. The talented 40-year-old penned the Jack Black comedy "School of Rock" as well as the Jennifer Aniston gem "The Good Girl."
"Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" is based on Seth Grahame-Smith's novel, a tale which infuses a number of flesh-eating creatures into Jane Austen's infamous love story.
