‘Zombieland 2’ to Begin Filming This Summer?!

ZOMBIELAND

Various casting sites are reporting that Zombieland 2 is targeting to begin filming in Atlanta this coming August.

This by no means confirms production will commence, but it’s another sign (the first being the logo on display at this month’s CinemaCon in Las Vegas) that the studio is moving forward with the long-gestured sequel.

Back in September of 2014 word came via Deadline that Sony Pictures was getting more serious about mounting another installment of Zombieland.

At the time the studio had hired Dave Callaham to write the sequel under the supervision of Ruben Fleischer, who’ll return to direct.

Callaham had been scripting The Expendables films, and he had story credit on Legendary’s revival of Godzilla.

They are not sure if the participants will be back; pretty much all of them have soared since making the original, from Jesse Eisenberg (who confirmed this in March) to Emma Stone, “True Detective’s” Woody Harrelson, and Abigail Breslin (who plays the title zombie in Maggie).

Zombieland came out in 2009 and was a box office superstar making over $100 million worldwide. Although, an awful Amazon series followed and was quickly canceled in 2013.

Eisenberg starred as a shy student trying to reach his family in Ohio, with a gun-toting tough guy (Harrelson) trying to find the last Twinkie, and a pair of sisters (Stone, Breslin) trying to get to an amusement park join forces to travel across a zombie-filled America.

  • the usual suspect

    This is the only thing that comes to mind with this announcement

  • DarkBree

    They have to bring the original cast back.

  • billbixby219

    if its not the original cast, or at least a majority of the original cast, not sure it will have near the magic of the first one. although i did kind of enjoy scouts guide to the zombie apocalypse so maybe there is a chance it will still be decent?

    • Meow

      imagine if both casts end up meeting each other lol

  • MundaneMatt

    I enjoyed the pilot for the tv series. The show knew what it was, and played to it. I feel that it would have gotten A LOT better had it gone to series.

    • Melwing

      Wow. I’m glad you enjoyed it. But I can usually enjoy almost anything to some degree, but that pilot was just awful (to me).

      • MundaneMatt

        The pilot was self-aware..and for a satire on zombies, that’s a good thing. As I said, it would have done better as the season went on. Too bad we’ll never see it though.

  • Mr J.

    Make it like a Left for Dead scenario, new people that have chemistry.

  • gabriel

    • Frank Lloyd Jr.

  • James Allard

    Will they stick to SNL Alum? I see Chevy Chase anywhere and I walk… unless someone comes from Chevy Chase, MD in which case that would be hysterical. ETA Oops, ‘cuz, y’know, the whole name thing.
