Deadpool 2 writers, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, have confirmed that a long-awaited sequel to their cult-hit Zombieland is, indeed, in production, as reported by Splash Report.
Zombieland, which starred Jesse Eisenberg as Columbus, Emma Stone as Wichita, Woody Harrelson as Tallahassee, and Abigail Breslin as Little Rock, chronicled the team’s adventures across a post-apocalyptic America zombie wasteland as the foursome headed to Los Angeles in an effort to find a reported safe zone.
The sequel, which is reportedly titled Zombieland Too, will take advantage of the real world time that has passed between the two films, and everything that would have happened in that interim. And, to make things more interesting, whilst most of the zombie population has died out, a new “super zombie” species emerges, stronger, larger, and much more destructive than anything the team has ever seen before.
The original quartet of Eisenberg, Stone, Harrelson, and Breslin are all set to reprise their roles for the film, which is expected to premiere around the tenth anniversary of Zombieland – October 2019.
On top of all of that, Ruben Fleischer is returning to direct, meaning the band will, indeed, be back together.
