Time freshen up on the rules of survival for Zombieland; yesterday came word that a sequel is in the works featuring the original cast, aiming for a 2019 worldwide release! It’s been almost a decade since director Ruben Fleischer brought us the hysterical gross-out story of Columbus, Tallahassee, Wichita, and Little Rock (played by Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone, and Abigail Breslin respectively).
Vulture got the 411 during an interview with original Zombieland scribes Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.
Paul Wernick: “We’re going on the tenth anniversary of Zombieland. 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. The hope is that we’re shooting that thing early 2019 for an October of ’19 release, with the original cast, by the way.”
