Jesse meets zombies

10.06.2008

Jesse Eisenberg is getting set to go from ADVENTURELAND to ZOMBIELAND. The actor is in negotiations to star in the upcoming Sony horror comedy ZOMBIELAND co-starring Woody Harrelson (is today Woody Harrelson Day or something?). The film follows a pair of mismatched survivors who find friendship in a world full of zombies. Eisenberg would play a terrified shut-in who gets matched up with a tough guy (Harrelson) leading a band of survivors. Survival horror comedies seem like all the rage lately with JAY AND SETH VS. THE APOCALYPSE also getting set to begin filming next year with Seth Rogen and Jay Baruchel. Ruben Fleischer, a music video and commercial director, is set to direct the film from a script by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Eisenberg has the coming-of-age comedy ADVENTURELAND from SUPERBAND director Greg Mottola coming next March.

Extra Tidbit: Jesse is the brother of Hallie Kate Eisenberg the once incredibly irritating "Pepsi Girl".

Two movies (one of which probably will never make it to the big screen) constitutes all the rage?

I agree with you wombat, the huy held his own with Richard Gere and Terrence Howard in the Hunting Party.

But seriously, another zombie movie.

One to watch

Don't know about the movie, but Eisenberg is definitely one of my favorite young actors. studboi, you should definitely check out both Roger Dodger as well as The Squid and the Whale. He's brilliant in both. I haven't seen him in much lately, so this is good news. At least I know he's getting work.
