If all goes according to plan, Zombieland 2 will bring back Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone, Jesse Eisenberg, and Abigail Breslin, and it’ll arrive in October 2019. Writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (Deadpool) have been our main source of recent information on the project, and now (alleged) script details have hit the net.
We’d like to stress the word “alleged,” as the source of this information is Splash Report, a website we’re not able to vouch for. So for now, take this all with a grain of salt…
What we do know is that Zombieland 2, according to Reese and Wernick, will not be taking place directly after Zombieland, and these plot details do echo that info.
The site digs in…
“ZOMBIELAND TOO opens with a question. What would happen if we ran out of zombies? An interesting concept, one that hasn’t been explored in any film of the genre thus far. The way the film approaches answering the question is both hilarious and depressing. The change from ‘zombies’ to ‘no zombies’ can be considered as big as the change from ‘no zombies’ to ‘zombies.’ It’s such a dramatic transformation to one’s routine, what they consider normal, that it fundamentally alters their mentality. Boredom and apathy seep into each person’s psyche, slowly growing discontent with one another until they reach an inevitable boiling point.
The main plot of ZOMBIELAND TOO follows the gang as they attempt to find Little Rock after she ran away with an individual (unnamed due to spoilers). Columbus, Tallahassee, and Wichita embark on a journey that takes them all the way across the country to hopefully save LR from certain death. You know how earlier I mentioned zombies were now extinct in Zombieland? I lied. You see, while the regular, lumbering creatures from the first film have no interest in humans anymore, rendering them essentially extinct, they have been replaced by SUPER ZOMBIES—giant, muscular, incredibly tough beings that are only able to be killed through a headshot. A horde of these super-zombies has been migrating from city to city, destroying everything in its wake. And it’s up to the gang to finally put an end to this bloodshed, or face extinction themselves.”
The site also notes that four new characters are added to the mix – Reno, TB, Cleveland, Madison – who seem to each be very similar to the characters we already know and love.
Again, we cannot confirm that any of this information is accurate, at this time.
