“Zombieland” co-writer/executive producer Rhett Reese took to Twitter to vent a bit upon hearing the news that Amazon will not be moving forward with the series. While reviews were definitely mixed, he seemed to place the blame on fans of the film who refused to embrace the concept.
Here are Reese’s comments:
Our Zombieland series will not be moving forward on Amazon. Sad for everyone involved.
I’ll never understand the vehement hate the pilot received from die-hard Zombieland fans. You guys successfully hated it out of existence.
Anyway, we did our best, and we’re very proud of our team.
“Zombieland” (review here) is based on the hit Columbia Pictures movie of the same name and finds four survivors outwitting zombies and searching for a place to call home. The “Zombieland” pilot comes from the feature film’s original creative team, writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (G.I. Joe: Retaliation, “The Joe Schmo Show”), and producer Gavin Polone (“Gilmore Girls,” “Curb Your Enthusiasm”).
Eli Craig (Tucker and Dale vs. Evil) directed the pilot. It stars Kirk Ward, Tyler Ross, Maiara Walsh, Izabela Vidovic, Tim Bagley, John Casino, Kendra Fountain, Andy Dylan, T. Ryan Mooney, Matt Fichera, Bob Fisher, Aja Frary, Dick Hancock, Casey Hendershot, Bobby Jordan, Joyce McNeal, Eric Miranda, Matthew Austin Murray, Christopher Place, and Andy Rusk.
