"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.
Recently we had a chance to sit down via conference call with co-creators/executive producers of Amazon TV's "Zombieland" (review) Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, and we've come back with a transcript of the highlights!
Now that we've heard from the writers of Zombieland, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, a couple of times, it's good to hear from the man at the helm regarding the upcoming 3D sequel.
Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, the writers behind Zombieland and its upcoming sequel, originally conceived the Zombieland universe as a TV show. Well, obviously that didn't work out, but if you really pay attention to the film, it's hard to deny that it pretty much feels like several bits of episodic television all glued together. Box office success hasn't changed their minds about makin' good on their small screen aspirations though.
Though I personally was a little disappointed with Zombieland, most people really dug it, and it performed well enough at the box office to warrant a sequel. Writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are working hard to make that happen, and when it does, you can expect all the usual suspects to return for another round of undead mayhem. But what else should you expect?
