Washington: Emma Stone has been offered the lead role in Craig Gillespie`s romantic horror flick, `Pride and Prejudice and Zombies`, it has been reported.

The `Easy A` actress - who recently completed filming on forthcoming Marvel comic prequel `The Amazing Spider-Man` with Andrew Garfield - is wanted for the role of Elizabeth Bennett after Oscar-winning star Natalie Portman dropped out, reports Contactmusic.

The movie is based on the book of the same name by Seth Grahame-Smith and takes the traditional Jane Austen novel and adds the un-dead into the mix of romance and drama.

David O. Russell and Mike White have also both dropped out of directing the film, although Natalie is still attached to produce.
