Amazon’s “Zombieland” pilot has found its female lead!
The Hollywood Reported states that “Vampire Diaries” and “Switched at Birth’s” Maiara Walsh, pictured, has booked the central role of Wichita in the comedic adaptation of the 2009 feature.
The comedy continues the events of the feature, with new actors taking over the roles of Columbus, Tallahassee and Wichita, previously played by Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson and Emma Stone, respectively, in the 2009 Ruben Fleischer feature.
Walsh will play Wichita, a natural con-woman and tough girl who with her younger sister Little Rock (Izabela Vidovic) teams up with Columbus (Tyler Ross) to survive the zombie apocalypse and search for survivors.
Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick will pen the script for Sony Pictures Television, which is producing the Amazon pilot.
