It’s been ten long years since horror comedy Zombieland landed in theatres and made everybody reassess their feelings on beloved comedian Bill Murray. Now, a decade on, the highly-anticipated sequel is just a few months away.
Filming begins this week on Zombieland 2. Original cast-members Woody Harrleson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, and Abigail Breslin are all slated to return alongside returning director Ruben Fleischer.
Also back for more are the original film’s writers, Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese, both of whom will also serve as executive producers. Original producer Gavin Polone is producing once more alongside them.
Joining the cast are Zoey Deutch, Avan Jogia, and Rosario Dawson. The premise sees 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 created in the first movie.
The upcoming flick’s official Twitter account gave fans a glimpse at the poster art, which naturally apes the original movie’s now-iconic poster, via the #10YearChallenge. It also, whether inadvertently or otherwise, shares the sequel’s subtitle: Zombieland 2: Double Tap.
The movie is set for an October 11, 2019 release.
