The news is just out, ZOMBIELAND 2 begins production in January
This is the news that will put a smile on the faces of hordes of fans – Zombieland 2 is officially on its way.
How long does it take for a film to become a cult classic?. The first Zombieland movie is now approaching 10-years-old. In my eyes that’s pretty much cult classic status, right there!. Now after a 10-year break, the original crew are back again.
Here’s what we can expect…
The group will face a new zombie threat as a new breed of zombie has developed. This new super-zombie type is faster, bigger, and stronger than the previous strain of zombies and harder to kill. These super-zombies have started grouping up into a horde going from city to city leaving a path of destruction behind them.
Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Abigail Breslin and Emma Stone will all reprise their roles from the first movie.
There’s no reason for this film to suck. We have had a 10-year break. Even though ZOMBIELAND was a hugely successful zombie movie they didn’t try to expand the universe and bleed it dry. I have a funny feeling that this could be the beginning of the expansion of the ZOMBIELAND universe.
Also, I don’t know how I feel about the “super zombie” concept. To me, that sounds like an epic XBOX ONE game rather than a sequel to ZOMBIELAND. Still, I have faith in the sequel. I have been waiting like a crackhead for nearly 10-years, let’s hope it will be worth the long wait.
ZOMBIELAND 2 is set to begin filming in Atlanta on the 28th January 2019. Filming will also take place in Tennessee.
More news to follow as it’s announced. Hope you enjoyed reading this as much as I did writing it.
Thanks for reading.
