Zombieland sequel still alive, according to Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese

  The last time we heard anything close to official about a ZOMBIELAND sequel was in 2014, when it was announced that the film was indeed moving forward with original helmer Ruben Fleischer and writer Dave Callaham (THE EXPENDABLES).
