Zombieland sequel update from director Ruben Fleischer

Jan. 10, 2013by: Eric Walkuski

It has been fairly clear these last couple of years that holding out hope for a sequel to ZOMBIELAND is pretty foolish. The stars have gone on to bigger things (Jesse Eisenberg received an Oscar nomination, Emma Stone is Gwen Stacy) as has director Ruben Fleischer, who's latest flick, GANGSTER SQUAD, is about to pop into theaters.

And yet... it's still kinda fun to think about it, isn't it? Fleischer obviously thinks so, as indicated in a recent interview with Colider. The director admits that he was initially hesitant to jump right back into the ZOMBIELAND world, itching to take on different things (his follow-up was the 30 MINUTES OR LESS), but now he sounds like he's willing to go back. If anybody else is.

I hate to do it, but I can say that theres no immediate plans to make the movie. Theres no script, really, so the likelihood of it happening is slim. But I would not wanna put a nail in that coffin.

Well I think that the studio would be very excited to make it. Its not that the studio is not excited, its that we took one shot at the script [and] it wasnt something we all got excited to do. And just on a personal level, I was really excited to, having made one movie, to make different movies, not just go back into that world again. But now that I have some distance and Ive done some other stuff, I would be more inclined to go back to Zombieland I guess you could say. But at the time when the talk of the sequel was reallywhen it felt like it was possibleI was really kind of shying away from it just because Ive only made one movie, I wanna make different movies with different people and learn different things, and so I was a little hesitant to just jump right back into the same thing.

So what was the sequel's premise?

Needless to say it was a continuation of the original story with the same characters. I guess the only thing I could really say is that the threat to our heroes wasnt only zombies, like they encounter other people that theyre all jockeying for positions.

Sounds like it gets a little "Walking Dead," but with humor instead of tragedy. I can dig it; unfortunately, it's probably certain that we will never get another ZOMBIELAND..

Extra Tidbit: Would you like to see ZOMBIELAND 2, or are you fine with ZOMBIELAND being a one-off?

zombieland is being made into an online tv series, so a sequel is probably not going to happen
