Downloads = No Zland 2?

11.11.2009by: Jared Pacheco

You've all seen ZOMBIELAND at least once right? Well if you did then I bet you dug the hell out of it. Understandably so too, ZOMBIELAND was awesome! And dare I see ZOMBIELAND is actually an awesome movie that should get a sequel? Usually us genre fans moan and groan at the thought of a 'sequel' but with ZOMBIELAND I get the feeling it'd be welcomed with open arms... if it happens that is.

You see this here internet may dampen plans for a ZOMBIELAND 2. How so? Well piracy of course! ZOMBIELAND co-wirter Rhett Reese updates us via his Twitter: "Zombieland currently the most pirated movie on bit torrent. Over one million downloads and counting. ...... Beyond depressing. This greatly affects the likelihood of a Zombieland 2."

Interesting. Think there's some ground to this or is Reese just trying to get more bank? Sure the insane popularity of ZOMBIELAND on the torrents is losing it a lot of money... but the flick is already a success no? And I'm willing to bet a lot of the people who downloaded the flick only did so after checking it out in theaters, and most of them will probably run out to pick up the DVD as soon as it hits shelves. I know I can't wait to get that shite!

What do you guys think? ZOMBIELAND 2 in any danger? If anyone is in the know it would be Reese right? Hopefully we'll find out soon if ZOMBIELAND 2 is in fact a go or not. As always be sure to keep it here for updates!

Stop being cheap, get out of the house, and go see a movie, even if it is not this one. No wonder why obesity rates are so high, Americans are too lazy.

Funny how my last comment got so many negative reviews. Probably because they are upset that their downloading instead of paying is going to backfire on them.

Really, they should be happy this is the most pirated movie right now? If this movie had not made a profit, people could have been out of jobs, but I guess nobody cares because they

I feel like this is his way of trying to get people to stop pirating it. He wants to make it seem like the sequel is in harm if it continues to happen. But it's not. It's just a scare tactic and a poor one at that.

just make the sequel

Some people cant afford to spend $10-20 on a night out at the movies. Not saying pirating is right but, damn people want to see it. They should be flattered by the fact its the #1 pirated movie. Again, not saying its right but it maybe the only way for some to see it.

I think this is just a little reminder to let us all know that piracy still happens. It's not going to affect a sequel's status, as it was mentioned...it still did damn well. I think I might be proud to be the most bootlegged movie online :D

Let's see, according to boxofficemojo, it's cost about 24mil to make. And made about 74mil domestically. Please, the studio will probably make a sequel with or without the original writers.

Well that's what happens when they put out R5's months before anywhere else. Don't stagger release dates and you won't get shit like that.

Let me get this straight: If people continue to illegally download 'Zombieland', this will greatly increase the probability that the studio *won't* make an out-and-out shitty - or, at the very least, sub-par - sequel?

I... don't see the downside to this.

(FWIW, I haven't seen 'Zombieland' yet; I'm waiting for DVD.)

Thats the stupidest thing I've ever heard, piracy has been around forever and the studios spite their bitching and moaning all the time (like Harry Potter making a BILLION worldwide, but they've lost SO much money because of downloads) have never took that into consideration before, so why would they start now? The movie was highly in the green regardless of Piracy and right now its out of a lot of theaters. Honestly I'm tired of the piracy excuse as it has never affected (only according to

In other words, Skullbone did not got into the theaters to see the movie, but was one of the million people to illegally download it. I guess the excuse now is that it made money, so it is ok for me to not pay to see it now.

What if the movie had not made a lot of money, and was still in the red?

He's Full of shit

I don't care what he says. The movie made money and regardless of the fact of how much its been pirated it made enough money for the studio to see a sequel is a viable option. A sequel will get made.
