Zombieland sequel set to be released in 2019, original cast to return
A sequel to Zombieland looks set to arrive in 2019.
The film, which starred Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, and Abigail Breslin, took over $102.4 million at the box office when it was released in 2009.
Zombieland told the story of an unlikely foursome, a shy student trying to reach his family in Ohio, a gun-toting tough guy trying to find the last Twinkie, and a pair of sisters trying to get to an amusement park, travelling across America, an America which is now overrun by zombies.
Speaking to Vulture, writer Paul Wernick said of plans for a sequel: "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,”
Wernick had previously said that original director Ruben Fleischer, who is currently overseeing the Venom reboot, will return to take charge of the sequel.
