It’s being confirmed by multiple sources that Zombieland 2 is officialy in the works!
Sony Pictures has given the sequel the greenlight after a proposed television series failed to find the right backers and audience last year. Zombieland made over $122,000,000 internationally in 2009 off of a budget of only $24,000,000 so horror fans were bound to see a new reincarnation sooner or later.
Sony Pictures has tapped Dave Callaham – most known for writing The Expendables and Godzilla – to write the screenplay for Zombieland 2. It’s being rumored that Ruben Fleischer will return as director. No word yet on whether or not any of the survivor characters from the first feature will return for this go around. Many of the actors, especially Emma Stone, have achieved greater fame since the first film, but I hope at least one of them can return to make it a direct sequel.
There are no more details for release at this time, especially since Zombieland 2 is still in the script writing faze. However, Sony is reportedly urging the process along so it looks like we should see this sequel by late 2015 or early 2016. I know I’m excited!
