Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
The undead action comedy ZOMBIELAND was released back in 2009, the unlikely Woody Harrelson/Jesse Eisenberg film eventually earned $102 million at the box office, which in turn sparked plenty of talk about bringing Harrelson, Eisenberg, Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin back for a sequel. However by 2011, Eisenberg sounded hesitant about his involvement, questioning the sequel’s relevance while Harrelson made it known that he didn’t “feel like a sequels guy.” 2013 saw the attempt at ZOMBIELAND: The TV Series which was expected to happen through Amazon Instant Video but the company passed on the pilot.
Back in 2014 it seemed that Sony Pictures was determined to raise ZOMBIELAND 2 from the grave. They hired Dave Callaham to write the sequel, and ZOMBIELAND’s director, Ruben Fleischer was to be returning and also to supervise that script. With that idea seeming to fade into the shadows, we now have some light shed on the subject in regards to another film.
This past week at CinemaCon, Sony revealed that a follow up to ZOMBIELAND is in fact on the way. They also unveiled the ZOMBIELAND 2 logo.
Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who penned the first ZOMBIELAND and also worked on the DEADPOOL screenplay, will be on board for the sequel. Callaham, who wrote GODZILLA, will also be joining the writing team.
Fleischer, who also directed Eisenberg in 30 MINUTES OR LESS, is in fact set to return to direct the sequel.
At this time there are no casting details, nor has there been a release date set.
We will continue to bring you more on ZOMBIELAND 2 as it unfolds.
