The sequel to the popular Ruben Fleischer’s Zombieland is set to begin filming in January 2019 with an expected arrival in theaters in October 2019, Fleischer revealed during an interview with Fandango.
“I’m thrilled. We’re already actually starting Zombieland,” Fleischer said.
“I’ve been scouting and storyboarding and getting it going, and to get to work with that cast again is just an absolute dream come true. It’s been really exciting starting to think about that movie, and to get to work with Emma, Jesse, Woody and Abigail once again is truly a dream come true.”
“It’s been 10 years, so who knows what the world will look like at this point?”
The sequel continues the story from the first film, “through comic mayhem that stretches from the White House and through the heartland, the Zombie slayers must face off against many new kinds of zombies that have evolved since the first movie, as well as some new human survivors. But most of all, they have to face the growing pains of their own snarky, makeshift family.”
The film will see the return of original stars Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone, Jesse Eisenberg and Abigail Breslin.
