Zombieland 2

It’s time for the yearly checkup on Zombieland 2‘s pulse. The sequel to Ruben Fleischer‘s (30 Minutes or Less) kindhearted post-apocalyptic zombie comedy has been talked about and sometimes doubted for the last eight years now. During that time, the stock of film’s stars has risen. Emma Stone recently won an Oscar after the world went nuts for La La Land, while Woody Harrelson starred in The Hunger Games franchise and has a role in the new Han Solo film.

They’re more sought after and naturally more expensive to hire. According to the screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick behind the 2009 film and Deadpool, paying them what they’re deserved while staying reasonable is a part of the next steps on the sequel, which makes it sound a little more likely than it has before.

Below, get the latest Zombieland 2 update.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

post-credits scenes

Thanks to Marvel Studios, fans have started to stick around more often after the credits, or at least a flashy closing credits sequence, to make sure there isn’t some secret scene to catch. But there have been plenty of post-credits scenes that played the big screen far before Iron Man ever teased the assemble of The Avengers back in 2008.

And now a new video takes a look back at 10 post-credits scenes that you may have never seen. For example, Bill Murray is a riot in Zombieland, but did you know there’s one more tidbit with the Ghostbusters star spouting off a classic line from Caddyshack at the end of the credits of the horror comedy? Check out that and nine other post-credits scenes you may have missed below, but beware of spoilers for the end of the movie in order to explain the context. Read More »

Theme Park Movies and Scenes

This weekend, director Brad Bird takes into a whole new world with the Disney sci-fi adventure Tomorrowland. The film starring Britt Robertson and George Clooney is influenced and inspired by the real-life Disney theme park attraction of the same name (even if references to Walt Disney were cut out of the movie). Therefore, this seems like the perfect time to take a look back at some of our favorite theme park movies and scenes from the big screen.

Below we have a countdown of the Top 15 Favorite Theme Park Movies & Scenes. Frankly, there aren’t an overwhelming number of theme park-based movies before you start getting into bad movie territory (such as Beverly Hills Cop III or Final Destination 3). That’s why we’ve included some great scenes from films that might not be entirely set at a theme park. We’ve also expanded the concept to include carnivals, fairs and water parks, because it just makes sense. Check out the list after the jump! Read More »

‘Zombieland 2’ Back on Fast Track With New Writer

ZOMBIELAND

Much like the characters implied by the title, Zombieland 2 keeps coming back to life. The original writers, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, have been thinking about a sequel for years and eventually spun some of those ideas into a Amazon TV pilot. The show was not picked up, and most thought that was the end. Like a good zombie, however, the feature version of Zombieland 2 is now rising from the grave.

A new report says Sony Pictures has hired Dave Callaham, writer of the first two Expendables movies, to pen a sequel with Ruben Fleischer expected to return and direct. Read More »

Zombieland TV series header

Zombieland started as a TV pitch, became a movie, went back to a TV format and is now dead. The TV pilot, which premiered on Amazon last month, has been officially axed by the streaming service, ending a rollercoaster ride for the creators and fans of the franchise who’d been clamoring for a follow-up. Franchise creators Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick wrote and directed the pilot which featured the same humor, violence and characters and as the movie, but with less recognizable actors.

Reese took to Twitter to voice his displeasure with the show’s dismissal, suggesting Zombieland fans “hated it out of existence.” Read more below. Read More »
