Natalie Portman, who was once attached to the project in the role of Elizabeth Bennet, remains on board as a co-producer, Deadline reports.

Based on the novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has been in development since 2010 with directors Craig Gillespie, Mike White and David O Russell attached at one stage.

Grahame-Smith's book has sold more than 1.5 million copies in the US alone and was adapted as a graphic novel shortly after its release.

A new director for the project is currently being sought.
