Hathaway &amp; McAvoy Battling <i>Pride &amp; Prejudice &amp; Zombies</i>

In the continuing saga of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, a project that's seen multiple names come aboard and leave just as quickly, it appears that two new actors are stepping into the ring: Anne Hathaway and James McAvoy.

Hathaway, the newly minted Oscar host and star of Love and Other Drugs, is being considered for the lead role of Elizabeth Bennett, reports Pajiba. McAvoy, on the other hand, is up for the part of Darcy. Several other actors have been attached to both roles in the past, including the likes of Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson and Bradley Cooper.

Mike White is directing the period piece/zombie mashup, which itself is based on a novel written by Seth Grahame-Smith.
