It’s been confirmed, the cult comedy film, Zombieland, will be getting a sequel next year in October – with the original cast returning too.
While on their press tour promoting Deadpool 2 directors Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick confirmed Zombieland 2 was give the green-light for 2019, with Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone, Jesse Eisenberg and Abigail Breslin all set to return.
Resse and Wernick said the release would be out in time for the original’s tenth anniversary. Zombieland was released in October 2009.
Speaking to Vulture Wernick said:
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.
We are sitting on information that we can’t entirely share at this moment, but we can just say we think fans of Zombieland who have been hoping for a Zombieland 2, that we will grant their wish very, very soon.
I for one am excited to see the return of Columbus, Tallahassee, Wichita and Little Rock. Unfortunately, we doubt Bill Murray will be back… so sad.
