According to Pajiba, James McAvoy (Atonement) and Anne Hathaway (Love and Other Drugs) have been added to the list of potential actors being considered for the feature film adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

Based on the book by Seth Grahame-Smith, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies combines Jane Austen’s 1813 novel Pride and Prejudice with elements of zombie horror fiction.

McAvoy and Hathaway – who previously starred together in Becoming Jane – join Scarlett Johansson (Iron Man 2) and Bradley Cooper (The Hangover), who have also been linked to the adaptation in recent weeks, as potential candidates.

Mike White (Year of the Dog) is attached to direct, after replacing David O. Russell, with Natalie Portman (Black Swan) on board as producer.
