Yep, it’s gonna happen! Ruben Fleischer’s brand of undead flesheater will soon be shambling, running, slipping, and sliding off the big screen in the third dimension, baby!
Variety reports that Sony has closed deals with producer Gavin Polone and helmer Ruben Fleischer to return for a sequel to the original, which cost $24 million and has earned $85.2 million worldwide to date. The Culver City studio is currently in talks with stars Woody Harrelson and Jesse Eisenberg to reprise their roles as a pair of post-apocalyptic survivors. Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are working on the sequel’s screenplay.
“Everyone had fun watching (the first) ‘Zombieland’; making it a more visceral experience can only make it better,” Polone tells Variety. “I don’t think you want to see ‘Ordinary People’ in 3D. But ‘Zombieland’ is clearly one movie that will benefit from (the technique).”
Look for more soon!
