It’s been on the cards for a while, but it has now been confirmed that Zombieland is officially happening. Ruben Fleischer will again direct and the original stars Emma Stone, Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg and Abigail Breslin will also return to reprise their roles from the 2009 original.
Joining them now is Zoey Deutch, who will play the role of Eisenberg’s love interest. Hopefully she’ll be a little more than just that. You may recognise Deutch for her roles in Vampire Academy, Dirty Grandpa or Why Him? She is also set to star in the upcoming series Buffaloed.
Not much has been revealed in terms of the story for Zombieland 2, but it will take the group 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.”
Zombieland 2 will begin shooting this year, with a release date slated for 11th October 2019.
