Apparently that Zombieland sequel isn’t quite dead yet

People are still talking about a ZOMBIELAND sequel? I thought we all agreed to let that one go awhile back. After all, the pilot for a TV series version of the concept couldn’t get past the pilot stage over at Amazon, so you’d think that would’ve been the final nail in the coffin for more ZOMBIELAND and we’d all get on with our lives.

You’d be wrong.

In a recent interview on The Q&A Podcast, DEADPOOL writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who also penned the first ZOMBIELAND, were asked about the state of any more ZOMBIELAND, and apparently the idea isn’t totally dead yet.

‘It’s actually still in development at Sony, they’ve had a couple writers take a crack at it, we’re still exec producers and we’re guiding and helping where we can and I think there’s still very much talk about it, but I think it has to be right,’ said Reese. ‘I think all the actors and Ruben [Fleischer], all feel like there’s no reason to do it again if we’re not getting it exactly right.’

Okay… so it’s mostly dead, but only being kept on life support in the event that someone can wake it up out of its creative coma and generate an idea so amazing that everyone would have no choice but to sign on and do another one. That makes a little more sense. Don’t hold your breath waiting for another ZOMBIELAND to come around anytime soon. There’s probably a better chance of an actual zombie apocalypse happening at this point, but then again… you never know.
