I guess since Mike White's only previous association with zombies(that I can remember) is his toilet scene from Zombieland, it was sortof odd that he was chosen to direct Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, the adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's 2009 novel. His only directorial effort was Year of the Dog, a rather tepid dark comedy starring Molly Shannon. Well, now it's no longer a concern as Deadline reports that White has dropped out of the project due to scheduling conflicts. Scheduling conflicts? With what? Is he going back on The Amazing Race again, or something?
This makes the second director to remove himself from the production, with David O. Russell(The Fighter) being the first. So let the search begin for a replacement!
