Could it be that Zombieland 2 might actually happen after all? The 2009 comedy was a big hit with both audiences and critics, putting a smart spin on the zombie genre with an excellent ensemble and one of the best-used cameos in recent memory. Sony Pictures was keen on making a sequel, as was some of the cast (most notably Woody Harrelson), but they were never able to come up with a script that everyone was happy with. Last we heard—which was nearly two years ago—director Ruben Fleischer said there were no immediate plans for Zombieland 2, and Amazon even attempted a Zombieland TV series that was met with a resounding “no thank you.”
But now it appears that there’s life in the follow-up yet, as Sony has hired a new screenwriter to pen a script under the supervision of Fleischer, who intends to return as director. More after the jump.
