Fans of the original movie Zombieland will be pleased to hear that Zombieland 2 is possibly set for release in late 2019. The original film was written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. These same writers also wrote both Deadpool movies. Zombieland’s original director has yet to confirm his involvement, but there’s no evidence that he wouldn’t be a part of the sequel. Some sources do say he will be involved though. However, all the original cast appears to be onboard with Zombieland 2.
Zombieland premiered in 2009 and was a huge hit with fans. It has since become a cult classic. The film is set in a post-apocalyptic zombie-infested world. The main character, (Played by Jesse Eisenberg) is alone and has a strict set of survival rules. He encounters many characters along his journey to find his parents. These include characters played by Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone, Abigail Breslin, and even Bill Murray. It’s a wild, fun, quirky, action-packed, and gore-filled adventure! This left fans wanting more.
Writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have been wanting to create a sequel since the success of the first film. On the other hand, they were tied up with writing such successful films as the Deadpool movies, the G.I. Joe sequel, and Life. This has led to a happy coincidence of the sequel possibly being released on the ten-year anniversary of the original Zombieland.
The actors have also been in high demand. Emma Stone and Jesse Eisenberg’s careers have bloomed over the last ten years. Both actors have appeared in popular feature films. Jesse Eisenberg was nominated for an Oscar for his role in 2010’s The Social Network, while Emma Stone was nominated as well for her role in La La Land. Woody Harrelson went on to star in numerous films and shows. He appeared in all four of The Hunger Games movies, as well as his most recent project called Venom. Notably, Woody Harrelson worked on Venom with Zombieland’s director Ruben Fleischer.
The plot has yet to be released, but some sites claim that the script is already completed. If it’s anything like the original Zombieland, fans are in for a wild ride. Followers can hope to see Zombieland 2 in theatres within the foreseeable future.
