With the success over Zombieland nearly seven years ago, many have been wondering when a sequel would be released. The film was delayed due to director Ruben Fleischer wanted to make other films, as well as working on other films stopping the advancement of the film, the inability to make a story that everyone was excited about was preventing the sequel from being made.
With Dave Callaham being brought on to write a script for the film, the most recent update comes from SlashFilm that comes from the screenwriters of the first film, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Here’s what they had to say about the sequel:
“It’s actually still in development at Sony, they’ve had a couple writers take a crack at it, we’re still exec producers and we’re guiding and helping where we can and I think there’s still very much talk about it, but I think it has to be right. I think all the actors and [original ‘Zombieland’ director] Ruben [Fleischer], all feel like there’s no reason to do it again if we’re not getting it exactly right.”
