Pride and Prejudice and Zombies continues to fail

They seriously cannot get any support for this movie. Blake Lively, Natalie Portman, Emma Stone, Scarlett Johansson, and Mia Wasikowska have turned down roles. They can't get a director to stick to the project either.
I loved the book but I think after being rejected this many times and having so many things go wrong before it's even fully in pre-production is a sign that this shouldn't happen. At least not yet. In my opinion, the project should be nixed for now. It's obviously not the right time, especially with other zombie-themed shows/books doing so well (especially The Walking Dead). Not to mention Seth Grahame-Smith already has a movie based off one of his books in production, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Filming for that started in March and it even has Tim Burton on as a producer.

It just appears that Seth and Lionsgate just can't have it all, even with Natalie Portman sticking on as a producer. This is just an epic fail so far.
