We’ve heard for a while now that a Zombieland sequel was on the way, and now comes words that the film will start shooting early next year.
Speaking to Fandango, director Ruben Fleischer confirmed a January 2019 start date for the follow-up, explaining, “We’re already actually starting Zombieland. I’ve ben scouting and storyboarding and getting it going, and to get to work with that cast again is just an absolute dream come true. It’s been really exciting starting to think about that movie, and to get to work with Emma, Jesse, Woody, and Abigail once again is truly a dream come true.”
Fleischer continued, “We’re just at the very early stages, but we have an amazing script and we’re going to start shooting in Georgia in January. It’s been ten years, so who knows what the world will look like at this point.”
At this stage, Zombieland 2 is booked in for an October 11, 2019 release and, as alluded to, Emma Stone, Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, and Abigail Breslin are all set to return – as are Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.
