Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have recently been teasing that a sequel to 2009’s Zombieland was *probably* happening at some point, and they even recently noted that they hoped to get the sequel done and released in time for the first film’s 10th anniversary in 2019. Well folks, Zombieland 2 is finally official, we’ve learned tonight!
Deadline reports that Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone, Jesse Eisenberg and Abigail Breslin have all signed on to reprise their roles, with Ruben Fleischer back in the director’s chair!
Wernick and Reese are also back to write the script.
The film will begin production January 2019 and has an October 2019 release date.
In Zombieland 2, “through comic mayhem that stretches from the White House and through the heartland, the Zombie slayers must face off against many new kinds of zombies that have evolved since the first movie, as well as some new human survivors. But most of all, they have to face the growing pains of their own snarky, makeshift family.”
Gavin Polone returns as producer, with Reese and Wernick executive producing.
