We thought this day would never come, but it’s here, and we can’t stop smiling. Sony Pictures has confirmed that a ‘Zombieland 2′ is happening and all of the original cast members will be returning.
Emma Stone, Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg and Abigail Breslin are set to star in this sequel, which will be released in October of 2019, 10 years after the original film was released in 2009.
Not only will the original cast be returning, but director Ruben Fleischer will also return to direct. And of course writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese will be involved.
Filming will start in January 2019, so there is not a lot of time to back out now. We’ve had plenty of false starts before, but this looks like the real deal.
“In Zombieland 2, through comic mayhem that stretches from the White House and through the heartland, the Zombie slayers must face off against many new kinds of zombies that have evolved since the first movie, as well as some new human survivors. But most of all, they have to face the growing pains of their own snarky, makeshift family.”
The first film surprised everyone by making over $100 million worldwide. We have to imagine this sequel will bring home more than that. The audience has only grown throughout the years.
