'Zombieland 2' Officially Moving Forward with Original Cast

Zombieland

Zombieland

The 2009 horror-comedy classic Zombieland was, and still is immensely popular, grossing $100 million worldwide.

"The hope is that we're shooting that thing early 2019 for an October of '19 release", Wernick continued, "With the original cast, by the way".

They're just as excited for Zombieland 2 as fans are.

It added: "While rumors of the sequel have risen from the dead several times over the years, this time Sony really means it".

The sequel is tipped to see the group facing off against a more evolved form of zombie than we saw in the original, as well as meeting up with some new survivors.

United States entertainment trade website Deadline says the sequel will give fans "comic mayhem that stretches from the White House and through the heartland" as the misfits face new zombies and "the growing pains of their own snarky, makeshift family".

'Ceasefire reached' between Israel and Gaza militants
Last Friday, one person was killed and 57 were wounded by Israeli military fire in protests at the Gaza-Israel border. Hamas said another Palestinian had died after being shot by Israeli troops during border protests on Friday.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Zombieland 2 is officially a go, and better yet, all of our core survivors will be returning to the fray, including Woody Harrelson's Tallahassee, Jesse Eisenberg's Columbus, Emma Stone's Wichita and Abigail Breslin's Little Rock.

Sanford Panitch, the president for Columbia Pictures, said that it was one "of those projects that fans" have been eagerly anticipating for a while, and so has the cast.

The movie will be directed by the original director, Ruben Fleischer.

The film is set to begin production in January of 2019 and now has a release date of October 2019. Original Zombieland writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese are back as well, hot off of the success of the Deadpool franchise. The studio states that the movie will show that the characters will "have to face the growing pains of their own snarky, makeshift family". "We are thrilled Ruben was willing to come back to direct the sequel, as his work on Venom has been truly fantastic".

The challenge here will be working with each star's schedule, as Stone, Harrelson and Eisenberg have become increasingly busy and in-demand since 2009's Zombieland.
