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.
