After months of hearing nothing about either a sequel to Zombieland or the possible TV show, within a week we’ve learned what this TV version of Zombieland will be as well as where we’ll see it, on Amazon. Today, Deadline is reporting Sony Pictures TV and Amazon are reaching a distribution deal and the film’s original screenwriters, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, are signed on to write as well as executive produce. In addition, Zombieland‘s other producer, Gavin Polone, is also joining as executive producer.
The new guy is going to be, Eli Craig, who is in talks to direct the series. As he also directed the recent horror-comedy, Tucker & Dale vs Evil, the guy’s a shoe-in. Even better, Craig considers himself a big fan of the original movie,
Zombieland was just one of these fun rides. The first 30 minutes were probably some of the most exciting and humorous action-comedy-horror filmmaking I’ve ever seen.
I’m excited to enter Zombieland‘s hilarious spin on the post-apocalyptic worlds again, are you? What do you think of it being offered through Amazon’s streaming service?
