The main thing that sucks about being an elderly zombie? Unless you have your teeth, you’re gonna have to gum your human flesh food. If you’re lucky enough to have croaked with your dentures in, as you’ll see in this new still from “Zombieland,” the bond is anything but permanent!
From the Press Release
Amazon Studios, the original movie and series production arm of Amazon.com, announced it will add cult classic “Zombieland” to the line-up of pilots already in production for Prime Instant Video. “Zombieland,” which is the seventh comedy pilot added to Amazon’s pilot line-up, will be made available (along with the other six comedy pilots and six children’s pilots) for free on Amazon Instant Video and LOVEFiLM UK. Customers are invited to view the pilots and then review them on the site; customer feedback will help determine which of the 13 pilots Amazon Studios will make into full-season productions, to air on Prime Instant Video.
“’Zombieland’ is a fan favorite, and we can’t wait to see where this storyline goes in a serialized format,” said Roy Price, Director of Amazon Studios. “We’ve been announcing a lot of exciting exclusive content for Prime Instant Video, like ‘Downton Abbey,’ ‘Under the Dome,’ and ‘Justified’; and we think adding original shows to that lineup is going to make Prime even more enticing for customers.”
“Zombieland” 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) is directing the pilot.
The part of Tallahassee will be played by Kirk Ward (The Island), Maiara Walsh (“Desperate Housewives,” “Switched at Birth”) is cast as Wichita, Tyler Ross (Milkshake) will play Columbus, and Izabela Vidovic has the role of Little Rock.
“’Zombieland’ will strive to break the rules—action, adventure, thrills, chills and laughs, all packed into a half-hour format,” said creator Paul Wernick. “This is not your average show, but Amazon is not your average network.”
