A “Zombieland” Sequel Aims For Oct 2019

Movie News

 

“Zombieland” scribes Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have revealed to Vulture that they are hoping for an October 2019 release for the highly-anticipated but long in the works sequel to the 2009 horror action-comedy.

Set in a zombie post-apocalypse and filtered through a darkly comic lens, the original starred Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin as survivors attempting to outlast the living dead. Wernick confirmed that the original cast will be returning:

“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 2019 release. With the original cast, by the way.

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.”

The first film earned $102.4 million worldwide off a $23.6 million budget. The pair penned the “Deadpool” films along with “Life,” “G.I Joe: Retaliation” and the upcoming “Clue” remake.
