It’s been a long ten years of waiting for that highly-anticipated sequel to Zombieland. A decade later and we’ve finally been blessed with the first poster and name of the sequel. The poster features the original cast of Emma Stone, Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson and Abigail Breslin. Now, we have official confirmation from Eisenberg that Zombieland: Double Tap will finally wrap up shooting in just TWO weeks!
We can see the light at the end of the tunnel, fam!
Eisenberg hit the red carpet in New York for a special screening of The Hummingbird Project, providing Vulture with a few teasers to the upcoming zombie-filled sequel.
He also confirms that the film will pick up ten years later, with our favorite characters making a home in the abandoned White House.
“It took ten years to make because we were just insistent that the script be great — which sounds like it should be obvious, but that’s not always the case,” Eisenberg explains.
“Because the movie is not only popular but also beloved, people feel like it has some personal resonance for them, so we wanted to make sure that it’s as good or better than the first, and it feels that way! We have two weeks left and it feels really great. Everything we’ve done feels very funny.”
When it comes to the 33-and-counting rules for the zombie apocalypse, Eisenberg reveals that there are still more rules to come.
“We try to think of them every day on set because, you know, we can add them now. When we did the first movie, we didn’t know if it was going to wind up actually in the movie, and now we’re, like, all desperate to create new rules because we think it’d be fun.”
You can read the synopsis for the upcoming Zombie flick below:
“Through comic mayhem that stretches from the White House and through the heartland, the Zombie slayers must face off against many new kinds of zombies that have evolved since the first movie, as well as some new human survivors. But most of all, they have to face the growing pains of their own snarky, makeshift family.”
Aside from the OG cast, the film is adding some new faces. Zoey Deutch will play Eisenberg’s love interest in the film.
Zombieland: Double Tap will premiere in theaters Oct. 11.
