Just a quick update to tell you that previous reports were, to say the least, exaggerated. Emma Stone did receive an offer to appear in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, but she said no.
Fear of typecasting? Fear of the English accent? Schedule clash? Or maybe the script didn't meet her approval? Could be anything, really. But it is a symptom of how the web has really run away with the "offer story" lately.
So, this isn't news. At all. But a kind of apology, partly on Variety's behalf, I suppose. Didn't mean to get your hopes up and all that, eh?
I suppose I can learn a lesson from this. Maybe. Stay tuned to see if I do.
