It looks like the whole gang is back for Zombieland 2 for the original’s 10th Anniversary next year

The band is finally getting back together for a road trip to Tallahassee, Columbus, Wichita and Little Rock for a 10-year anniversary tour in Zombieland

Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are currently on the crest of a wave and riding high with Deadpool 2 opening to positive reviews and no doubt a shed load of cash, but even after 10 years the hordes are still clamouring for Zombieland 2.

Recently the dynamic duo spoke with Vulture about their massive 2009 hit and their upcoming projects, Clue (or Cluedo for people in the UK) based on the murder mystery board game, a remake of Cowboy Ninja Viking with Chris Pratt and a series called Wayne that will be on Youtube’s paid service Youtube Red.

“We’re going on the tenth anniversary of Zombieland,” Wernick said.

“Zombieland came out October of 2009. We don’t know what you get someone for their tenth anniversary, but it may be a Zombieland 2. The hope is that we’re shooting that thing early 2019 for an October of ’19 release with the original cast. 

“We are sitting on information that we can’t entirely share at this moment, but we can just say we think fans of Zombieland who have been hoping for a Zombieland 2, that will we will grant their wish very, very soon.”

Zombieland, directed by Ruber Fleicher and starring Jessie Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin made over $100 Million from a $23.4 Million budget and took us all by surprise with its unique, funny and gory take on the zombie apocalypse with possibly the most memorable cameo in a movie from Bill Murray.

The cast had always been open to returning for a sequel but it never panned out before and we had to make do with a very poor Amazon Prime Tv series.

Are you looking forward to returning to Zombieland? Which megastar would you like to see make a Murray like cameo?  Let us know in the comments below…
