Zooey Deschanel Will NOT Play Ada Lovelace

Yesterday, Geekosystem columnist Sarah Walker expressed her dismay at the rumor that “prototype Manic Pixie Dream Girl” Zooey Deschanel was going to play Ada Lovelace in a coming period drama, “Enchantress Of Numbers,” and recited all of the reasons why that would have been a bad idea.

Well: looks like there’s no need for dismay, as Deschanel as Lovelace is not going to happen (at least this time). A rep for PMK•BNC, IPG’s pop-culture focused PR and marketing firm, told Geekosystem that Deschanel “is not attached to the film.”

She will, however, be playing a “virginal bride” in Your Highness, a fantasy comedy slated for release in October.
