Original Zombieland screenwriter Paul Wernick has confirmed a sequel should release next year, with the original cast all to return.
Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin will all feature in Zombieland 2, which Wernick says will release in October 2019, exactly a decade after the original film.
The zombie action comedy was a hit and Wernick, after working on Deadpool and Deadpool 2 alongside Ryan Reynolds, told Vulture a sequel is on the way.
“We’re going on the tenth anniversary of Zombieland,” he told Vulture.
“Zombieland came out October of 2009. We don’t know what you get someone for their tenth anniversary, but it may be a Zombieland 2.
“The hope is that we’re shooting that thing early 2019 for an October of ’19 release.
“With the original cast, by the way.”
