Zombieland 2 is on, and with the original cast

Thursday, 17 May, 2018

The 2009 action film Zombieland is approaching it's 10 year anniversary and the writers behind the film, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, think the best anniversary gift is a second installment of the science fiction comedy. "We don't know what you get someone for their tenth anniversary, but it may be a 'Zombieland 2'". In other words, the time for a Zombieland sequel may have passed.

Are you excited about the idea of Zombieland 2? The original film hit back on October 2, 2009, which sets the decade mark about a year-and-a-half away, which means, in the very least, the preproduction process needs to wrap up soon. Wernick said that Harrelson, Eisenberg, Stone, Breslin, and Murray will all return: "With the original cast, by the way". "We don't know what you get someone for their tenth anniversary, but it may be a Zombieland 2.with the original cast, by the way".

Since the original Zombieland hit theaters almost 10 years ago, Reese and Wernick have been busy penning 2016's Deadpool alongside co-writer and star Ryan Reynolds, Deadpool 2, Life, G.I Joe: Retaliation, the upcoming board-game adaptation of Clue as well as Michael Bay's Six Underground. Wernick kept his cards close in saying the impending sequel may be launching in October 2019, but it seems that it'll quickly turn into a guaranteed thing.

Wernick and Rees have hoped for a sequel for a few years now. A pilot was made by Amazon for TV series, but it was ultimately not picked up, and all the main roles were recast anyway.

The original film saw the four actors - who played Tallahassee, Columbus, Wichita and Little Rock - congregate as a zombie disease takes over America.

'I really loved the first one and the reason I don't say it definitely will happen is I want to make sure, and a lot of people want to make sure, it's as good as the last one, ' he said. Perhaps we'll find out soon.
