Zombieland Sequel gets the fast-track treatment at Sony

October 1st, 2014 by Derek Robertson Comments

Deadline has reported that Sony Pictures are getting increasingly serious about a sequel to the critically acclaimed Zombieland.

Dave Callaham – who has recently been scripting The expendables films, and had a story credit on Legendary’s revival of Godzilla – has just been hired by the studio to start writing the sequel under the guidance of Ruben Fleischer, who’ll return to direct.

The question lies with the original cast, who have since became hot property since making the original, from Jesse Eisenberg to Emma Stone, Woody Harrelson, and Abigail Breslin (who is set to play a zombie in upcoming film Maggie).

If it is anywhere near as good the first movie then we are on board.

Derek Robertson has dabbled in many aspects of the media industry from a young age. He has always had an admiration for, film, science fiction and all things geek-like. Working in the music industry with Sony/BMG Records gave Derek insight and experience into video directing. Thusly, for many years he took a hands-on, multi-disciplinary approach in creating and editing treatments; working with performance artists, writing and producing music and working both; in front of, and behind the camera. Studying a Msc in Forensic Psychology has embedded a conceptual ethos that has spawned his signature writing style that he now infuses whilst blogging for numerous websites; writing music reviews, movie news, and reviewing network shows et al., . Derek continues to try and erase the boundaries between the homogenous and the insanely dull, culturally enmeshing contemporary socio-political aspects into the mix of the monolithic media industry.
