After months of rumours, it has been confirmed that original Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer (Venom) will begin shooting the much-anticipated sequel in January 2019. What’s more, the original core cast – Abigail Breslin, Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone – are all reprising their roles. And the original film’s screenwriters, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (Deadpool and its sequel), are also back on board while also serving as executive producers. Gavin Polone is once again the main producer.
“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 long-awaited comedy horror sequel is slated for an October 2019 release.
