Zoey Deutch is going to get the chance to test her zombie fighting skills.
The sequel features original cast members Emma Stone, Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, and Abigail Breslin. It also features Deutch as Columbus’ (Eisenberg) love interest.
Much of the information surrounding the sequel is still under wraps and we’ve only been granted bits and pieces.
The rumored plot follows the original cast as they try to rescue Little Rock (Breslin), who ran away with an unnamed character. New characters include Reno, TB, Cleveland, Madison, and more.
What we do know is that the sequel will feature some new kinds of zombies as well as other survivors. The zombies have evolved in a way, now that time has passed, they have adapted and gotten stronger.
“This is one of those projects that fans have wanted to see happen for a long time – and no one wanted to see it happen more than Emma, Woody, Jesse, and Abigail. These are some of the most in-demand actors and I think they are making this movie because they love these characters. We are thrilled Ruben was willing to come back to direct the sequel, as his work on Venom has been truly amazing,” said Sanford Panitch, Columbia Pictures president.
Along with Fleischer, Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese are back to pen the script. Gavin Polone returns as producer along with Reese and Wernick as executive producers. The film is set to start production in January.
Zombieland 2 will be released in theatres on October 11, 2019, for the 10th anniversary of the original.
