The long-awaited sequel to Zombieland hits theaters this October. Today, Sony revealed the film’s official title — Zombieland: Double Tap — along with a first look at the film’s principal cast members: Emma Stone, Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, and Abigail Breslin. Fittingly, the teaser image plays off the viral #10YearChallenge by pairing a new image alongside a cast photo from the original film, which was released in 2009.
Production on Zombieland 2 is scheduled to begin this month, with a release date scheduled for October 11th, 2019. The film’s original director, Ruben Fleischer, returns to helm the sequel using a script penned by original screenwriters Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese.
A plot synopsis provided by Deadline reads: “the sequel centers on the comic mayhem that stretches from the White House and through the heartland. The zombie slayers must face off against the many new kinds of zombies that have evolved since the first movie, as well as some new human survivors. Most of all, they have to face the growing pains of their own snarky, makeshift family.”
