The 2009 action film Zombieland is approaching it’s 10 year anniversary and the writers behind the film, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, think the best anniversary gift is a second installment the science fiction comedy. Since the duo released their breakout movie, that garnered $102.4 million on a $23.6 million budget, they’ve been making films non-stop such as Deadpool and Deadpool 2, Michael Bay’s Six Underground, and the board-game adaptation film Clue.
They recently opened up to Variety about their first project and how it’s coming together. “Zombieland came out October 2009. We don’t know what you get someone for their tenth anniversary, but it may be a Zombieland 2,” Paul said. “The hope is that we’re shooting that thing early 2019 for an October ’19 release – With the original cast, by the way.”
As by original cast, Paul is referring to Emma Stone, Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Amber Heard, Abigail Breslin and Bill Murray. If you can’t fully remember the first movie, check out the trailer below and get ready for the second installment.
“We are sitting on information that we can’t entirely share at this moment,” Paul continued. “But we can just say we think fans Zombieland who have been hoping for a Zombieland 2, that we will grant their wish very, very soon.”
