Some potentially good news for fans of 2009’s Zombieland, as a sequel may be on its way. During an interview with Vulture, writers of the original film, Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese, enticed fans by saying Zombieland 2 is hoping for a 2019 release.
“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. The hope is that we’re shooting that thing early 2019 for an October of ’19 release…With the original cast, by the way.”
It appears as if an official word cannot be given at this time as Wernick continued.
“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.”
An unusual and fun take on the genre, the original Zombieland saw an odd group of people team up to combat the zombie apocalypse and had a fantastic cameo from the legendary Bill Murray. From what Wernick says the writers plan to bring back the original cast which included Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone, Jesse Eisenberg and Abigail Breslin.
