The sequel to ‘Zombieland’ is still happening as Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese reveal on AMC’s ‘Geeking Out’ they are currently writing the screenplay for the film.
“Zombieland 2” is still happening with Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese providing the script. Appearing on AMC’s “Geeking Out” with Kevin Smith and Greg Grunberg, the scribes, who also co-wrote the script for “Zombieland“, reveal they are currently writing the screenplay for the sequel.
“That is breaking news that we’re on ‘Zombieland 2’ right now,” say Wernick and Reese. The pair add that they will discuss the next step with actor Woody Harrelson, “We’re sitting with Woody tomorrow and are going to sort of walk him through some of the stuff we want to do. All the cast is pretty excited.”
It’s unclear whether the original cast including Emma Stone, Jesse Eisenberg and Abigail Breslin will return to the sequel as the two screenwriters haven’t given any comments. Wernick and Reese, who just finished writing the screenplay for “Deadpool 2“, also talk about working with Bill Murray in “Zombieland”. They explain that before Murray took the role, several legendary actors including Mark Hamill and Sylvester Stallone were eyed to take the role.
The original film which was released in 2009 received good reviews and topped North American box office with $24.7 million from ticket sales in its first week. The film, which follows a misfit band of survivors who teams up to find a safe place away from the zombie’s reach, collected a final gross $75.6 million domestically and $26.8 million in other territories.
