Zombieland 2! Yes Please!
Last month we brought you news that Jesse Eisendberg was discussing that Zombieland 2 was possibly in the works. A couple of days ago at CinemaCon Sony let the cat our of the bag and showed a logo for Zombieland 2. The logo is not much but it does prove that the film is in the works.
Also according to IMDb Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick who both worked on Deadpool and the original Zombieland will be working on the sequel, at least that is how it looks… the credit may just be from the original as those who wrote the work being sequeled get credit for the new work as well.
Zombieland hit the scene hard in 2012 when Mad Cow disease morphed into a viral outbreak that causes the dead to walk again, hungry for flesh. Woody Harrelson famously portrayed Tallahassee, a cowboy survivor with a taste for Twinkies. When he meets up with Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg) and his friends he’s introduced to the rules for survival during the zombie apocalypse, and ultimately they all end up in an amusement part confronted with a horrifying zombie clown. The movie is complete cheese-ball, but fun.
Zombieland turned into an Amazon web series in 2013 with new actors playing the same characters, and the pilot was fairly well received. To be honest, I’m not really sure if the series continued on… dumb that I don’t know that for sure, but only watched the pilot. That could be because there were never more made, and it could just be I missed it. Please clear this up in comments below if you know.
In any case, a sequel on the big screen could be a ton of fun if it’s well cast. What are the chances that we’ll see an appearance of Woody Harrelson? That would be a blast.
