Zombieland 2 Is Officially Happening with Original Cast

Zombieland

Nine years after the release of the cult-favorite horror comedy, Sony Pictures is at long last reuniting the original cast for the sequel to Zombieland.

Wernick and Reese's success with the Deadpool films have opened up opportunities to develop this sequel, with the duo having hinted at the project earlier this year. Venom director Ruben Fleischer, who also directed the first installment, is back on board to helm the sequel that fans have been waiting almost a decade for.

According to the outlet, "The new movie will once again put the focus on comic mayhem, taking the quartet from the White House to the American heartland as they face off against new kinds of zombies that have evolved since the first movie, as well as some new human survivors. But, most of all, according to the studio, they have to face the growing pains of their own snarky, makeshift family".

"We're going on the tenth anniversary of Zombieland", Wernick admitted to Vulture.

The road from the 2009 original to Zombieland 2 has been long, as the almost decade-long gap would suggests.

So, there you have it, Zombieland 2 is officially official now, after months of speculation and rumors.

The original followed four strangers who meet on the road in the middle of the zombie apocalypse and, while initially at each other's throats, they soon come to bond with each other and form a close-bonded group.

While Sony didn't comment on the increased budget to THR, Columbia President Sanford Panitch said in a statement that they are thrilled to have Fleischer returning to the director's chair and that of all the people who wanted to see the sequel come to light, it was the four stars. "These are some of the most in-demand actors and I think they are making this movie because they love these characters".

After shambling through development for nearly 10 years, Zombieland 2 is finally on its way. And while it remains to be seen if this team can capture the same magic we saw up on screen back in 2009, we're certainly excited to find out. "We are thrilled Ruben was willing to come back to direct the sequel, as his work on Venom has been truly incredible".
