Next year will mark the 10-year anniversary of beloved horror-comedy Zombieland, and writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (Deadpool) noted last week that the plan is to celebrate the anniversary with Zombieland 2 next year!
Wernick told Vulture, “The hope is that we’re shooting that thing early 2019 for an October of ’19 release… With the original cast, by the way.”
So then, will Zombieland 2 be taking place directly after the events of the first film or will there be a significant time jump? In a Reddit AMA over the weekend, Reese and Wernick answered that very question, teasing a necessary time jump.
“Abigail Breslin is 9 years older than she was in [Zombieland], so it won’t be happening directly after! Can’t say beyond that!” they pointed out.
If all goes according to plan, Zombieland 2 will bring back Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone, Jesse Eisenberg, and Abigail Breslin.
