Next year will mark the 10-year anniversary of beloved horror-comedy Zombieland, and we’ve provided a handful of updates about a potential Zombieland 2 over the years. Most recently, just about a year ago, writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (Deadpool) noted that it was being actively developed, with the original cast on board.
Today, the latest update on Zombieland 2 via a chat Reese and Wernick had with Vulture.
“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,” Wernick told the site. “The hope is that we’re shooting that thing early 2019 for an October of ’19 release… With the original cast, by the way.”
He added, “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.”
If all goes according to plan, Zombieland 2 will bring back Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone, Jesse Eisenberg, and Abigail Breslin.
