Zombieland 2 has recently been announced at this year’s CinemaCon. It’s been seven long and hopeful years for fans of the first Zombieland, which was released back in 2009. The sequel was announced by the unveiling of the new logo for the horror-comedy’s next film. While the new logo may not be quite so new, being just the original logo with an added number, that still hasn’t thwarted the cult like following of fans the first movie garnered from rearing up and bursting with excitement.

The sequel to the indie-flick film has been confirmed to be in production at Sony. No plot or casting details have yet been released but it’s a fairly safe bet Zombieland 2 will feature much of the same chaotic and riveting experiences provided by it’s predecessor. The original Zombieland was based upon the plot of four zombie apocalypse survivors teaming up to take on an America infested with the undead in order to reach safe haven at an amusement park. The four survivors are casted by none other than; Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenburg, Emma Stone, and Abigail Breslin.

Rhett Reese and Paul Wenick have returned to write the script of the sequel, just as they did the original and are likely to have their hands full with the work they’re also doing on Deadpool 2. They have been joined by Dave Cullanham as part of the writing team and the sequel is to be directed by Ruben Fleisher. Ruben Fleisher has directed Jesse Eisenburg in 30 Minutes or Less and Emma Stone in Gangster Squad before along with the teams work together on the first film.

There’s clearly a great dynamic fothe group and all just about all of them have fantastic experience in their careers as a whole. With so much experience and talent behind Zombieland 2, it’s sure to blow fan’s expectations away. While it hasn’t been confirmed, it’s likely some if not many of the original movie’s actors will return to the sequel after the stunning success of the first. Zombieland had a production budge of nearly $24 million yet would go on to net almost $100 million in box office sales alone. The film’s writers have previously said, “We only need to do it, if it’s done right!”

In 2013 writers Wrenick and Reese attempted a new TV pilot for Amazon with a whole new cast yet poor reviews put it to a premature end. Despite the myriad of rumors surrounding Zombieland 2, which has no yet to set an official release, it’s no doubt the film will draw large crowds well after it’s future release!
