We’ve heard rumblings about it for years by this point, but a sequel to 2009’s Zombieland is now official!
As per Deadline, Zombieland 2 will begin production in January ahead of an October 2019 release date. Director Ruben Fleischer is back to direct, and Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone, Abigail Breslin, and Jesse Eisenberg will be returning to star.
The early word on the sequel has it pegged as, “through [the] 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.”
Now, if only they could find a way to somehow bring back Bill Murray…
As ever, expect more on Zombieland 2 as we get it.
