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.
The sequel idea appears to be getting some light shed onto it this time around as Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who penned the first ZOMBIELAND recently spoke with Vulture and had this to say about ZOMBIELAND 2.
“Zombieland came out October of 2009. We don’t know what you get someone for their tenth anniversary, but it may be a Zombieland 2.”
He went on to say:
“The hope is that we’re shooting that thing early 2019 for an October of ’19 release. With the original cast, by the way.”
Wow! They are shooting for a Halloween 2019 release date with the original cast. This is truly great news.
We will continue to keep you up to date on ZOMBIELAND 2 as we hear it.
