Zombieland: Double Tap – formerly Zombieland 2 – is a 2019 American comedy horror feature film directed by Ruben Fleischer (Venom), who began shooting the much-anticipated sequel to Zombieland (2009) in January of this year.
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.
Woody Harrelson has told Entertainment Weekly: “What we’ve shot so far, I’m really impressed with. Getting to hang out with these guys — Emma, and Abbie, and Jesse, and Ruben — I feel so lucky, really, really lucky. You know, it’s literally laughing all day long, and that’s your job. Like, my job is, I laugh all day long? It seems unbelievable. So, I feel really lucky right now.”
Jesse Eisenberg told Movie Web: “It’s going really well. Just resting on our laurels and really cocky [laughs]. No, the opposite. We’re working so hard. It’s one of these movies that, people loved it for personal reasons. So it’s not just a big hit movie. People love it for personal reasons so you want to make sure it’s as funny and as personal as the other one.”
On February 22, 2019, it was revealed that Luke Wilson (Vacancy; Sole Survivor; Scream 2) has joined the cast.
On January 29, 2019, The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Rosario Dawson (Daredevil; Sin City; Men in Black II) has joined the cast. In early February, it was confirmed that actor Thomas Middleditch, star of The Final Girls (read our review), Replicas and Godzilla: King of the Monsters, has joined the cast.
“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 release on October 18th, 2019.
