Even though the trend of making zombie films is getting more tired than pretty much any other sub-genre in the history of horror, it still doesn’t dampen my desire to see some of the ones that sound like they may either do something different or, at the very least, be a good time. “>Zombie Honeymoon (review) was a decent example of the latter, so news on a possible sequel piqued my interest.
“I’ve been in talks with the lead actress, Tracy Coogan, about reprising her role of Denise, and we’re excited about the prospect of working together again,” director David Gebroe told Fangoria in a recent interview. ”I just need financing, and we’re ready to go. I always figured I wouldn’t bother working on a sequel unless the first one was successful enough to warrant it. Well, Zombie Honeymoon definitely was, so there’s certainly an audience for a follow-up.”
So how to follow up the massive slaughter that ended the first film? Gebroe’s being tight-lipped about it but did say that the concept is ”fresh and unpredictable enough over the course of a second installment.”
Gebroe’s working on other projects as well, including one that may be produced by An American Werewolf in London director John Landis if all goes according to plan. No more details were available for that one either, but we’ll keep our ears open!
