It seemed like yesterday that we finally got confirmation that the long-rumored sequel to Zombieland was not only happening but coming out in October of 2019. Despite the fact that the movie is due out so soon, we don’t even have an official title yet. There was a rumored title of Zombieland Too but writer Rhett Reese confirmed to Screen Rant that that isn’t the title.
Yeah, that’s not the title. I don’t know why that’s on IMDB. Sometimes we just scratch our heads over how things like that happen. But Zombieland 2 starts shooting in January in Atlanta, Georgia. All the principals are back. We’re very excited. We think we finally got to a place where we think we got a sequel that’s worthy of the first movie. Time will tell if that’s the case, but it will come out sometime in October or November, or something like that. Later this year. It’s a blast to get that particular band back together. A lot of people who worked on Zombieland, including us, think of it as one of their favorite formative projects. To be able to return, ten years later, from when the first one came out, it’s a blessing that none of us thought was going to happen. To have it come together like this, it feels like capturing lightning in a bottle.
Reese was asked if they have an official title yet be confirmed that they “do have a title, but we can’t share it yet. But it’s not Zombieland Too.” We should learn more about this movie sooner rather than later and it’s going to be interesting whether or not they can pull this joke off twice.
Summary: Columbus, Tallahasse, Wichita, and Little Rock move to the American heartland as they face off against evolved zombies, fellow survivors, and the growing pains of the snarky makeshift family.
Zombieland 2, directed by Ruben Fleischer, stars Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone, Zoey Deutch, Abigail Breslin, Bill Murray, and Dan Aykroyd. It will be released on October 11th.
