Sundance breakout Tyler Ross, the above pictured star of indie Milkshake, and up-and-comer Izabela Vidovic, below, have been cast as two of the four leads in “Zombieland,” Amazon Studios’ comedy pilot based on the hit 2009 movie, reports Deadline.

The project, produced by Sony TV, is a continuation of the adventures of Tallahassee, Columbus (Ross), Wichita, and her younger sister Little Rock (Vidovic) — four humans who band together to survive the zombie apocalypse. In the movie, the “nerdy handsome” Columbus, who also narrates the story, was played by Jesse Eisenberg; Little Rock, a worldly girl hardened by adversity, was portrayed by Abigail Breslin.

Original “Zombieland” writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick wrote the pilot and executive produce with the movie’s producer, Gavin Polone.

    I’m less excited for this now that the original cast isn’t returning.

      There’s no way Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin are going to leave their current movie careers to make a TV show. Maybe Woody but the rest, i don’t think so.
