'Zombieland 2' Reunites the Cast of 'Zombieland'
While on the press tour to promote their new movie, Deadpool 2, writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick confirmed to Vulture that they're prepping a Zombieland 2 with the original cast.
"We’re going on the tenth anniversary of Zombieland," Wernick told Vulture. "Zombieland came out October of 2009. We don’t know what you get someone for their tenth anniversary, but it may be a Zombieland 2. The hope is that we’re shooting that thing early 2019 for an October of '19 release. With the original cast, by the way."
Unfortunately, that likely doesn't mean Bill Murray will return as part of the original cast, as he was murdered by Jesse Eisenberg's Columbus after dressing up like a zombie and scaring him. It's unclear if that means Bill Murray can't return as a zombie.
That is good news for fans, however, as Woody Harrelson's Tallahassee, Emma Stone's Wichita, and Abigail Breslin's Little Rock will all return according to the writers.
"We are sitting on information that we can’t entirely share at this moment," Wernick told Vulture, "but we can just say we think fans of Zombieland who have been hoping for a Zombieland 2, that we will grant their wish very, very soon."
