Zombieland is a film that, since its release, has gained quite the following online. Many people love it for its irreverent humor and sharp wit — not to mention its solid cast, which consists of Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, and Abigail Breslin. Earlier this week, we reported on the news that the film would begin production this coming January, and that the entire cast, along with writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, and director Ruben Fleischer would all be coming back.

Now, in an interview with Fandango, the filmmaker gave a more specific update on the project. Here’s what he had to say:

“We’re already actually starting Zombieland. I’ve been scouting and storyboarding and getting it going, and to get to work with that cast again is just an absolute dream come true. It’s been really exciting starting to think about that movie, and to get to work with Emma, Jesse, Woody and Abigail once again is truly a dream come true. Yeah, we’re just at the very early stages, but we have an amazing script, and we’re going to start shooting in Georgia in January.”

So, unless something crazy goes down, it looks like we’ll actually be getting this long-awaited sequel. Given how long it’s taken for this thing to come to fruition, I have a lot of confidence that it’ll actually be worth the wait. It’s not like Zombieland is a huge IP that the studio would be dying to exploit (though I guess they did try the TV show), and with everyone coming back, I get the feeling that everyone just wanted to make another one of these films.
