Ten years after the release of Zombieland, filming has begun on Ruben Fleischer‘s sequel, which will reunite the 2009 film’s four stars. Titled Zombieland: Double Tap, the film will also (naturally) feature a handful of brand new characters, and one of them will be played by The Final Girls and Godzilla: King of the Monsters star Thomas Middleditch.
Emma Stone, Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, and Abigail Breslin are all reprising their roles, with Zoey Deutch, Avan Jogia and Rosario Dawson joining them.
In this next installment, 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.
The script is by the original film’s scribes, Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese, both of whom will also serve as exec producers. Gavin Polone is also returning to produce the film.
The gang returns on October 11, 2019.
