It seems as though we’ve been talking about Zombieland 2 since the first film ended. And who can blame us? Ruben Fleischer’s 2009 zom-com was absolutely brilliant, gifting fans amazing characters, action and comedy. It’s a masterful film that’s been begging for a sequel for seven years. Sony is finally listening to our collective, unwavering plea!
According to onlocationvacations.com Zombieland 2 will begin filming in Atlanta, GA in mid-August.
While we’ve yet to hear official confirmation from Sony, rumor has it that Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, and Abigail Breslin will all return to reprise the roles of Tallahassee, Columbus, Wichita, and Little Rock, respectively.
Sony teased a Zombieland 2 logo at this year’s CinemaCon, and it appears they were dead serious about making this one a reality, and soon. Fortunately for fans, we’ve heard nothing but positivity from the ensemble, which further supports the rumor that all of our favorite unlikely heroes will once more take to the zombie-ridden streets to obliterate legions of the undead.
Ruben Fleischer is expected to return to the director’s chair. The script is being written by Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese (Zombieland, Deadpool), alongside Dave Callahan (The Expendables Trilogy).
No story details to share yet, but if the gang is shooting in August, we’ll have spoilers before you know it.
