Rumor: Zombieland sequel might add super zombies into the mix

Zombieland Jesse Eisenberg Woody Harrelson Ruben Fleischer

Last week, ZOMBIELAND writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick revealed that the first film's stars Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, and Abigail Breslin will be coming back for a sequel that will hopefully be ready for theatrical release in October of 2019 - the tenth anniversary of ZOMBIELAND's release.

Now someone called "Ludens" has written in to the site Splash Report with what they claim are details on the sequel's plot. We can't confirm the credibility of any of this, so right now these details should be taken with a grain of salt... but here's a look at what ZOMBIELAND 2 (ZOMBIELAND TOO?) might be about.

ZOMBIELAND TOO opens with a question. What would happen if we ran out of zombies? An interesting concept, one that hasn’t been explored in any film of the genre thus far. ... All the main folks from the first film return: Columbus, Tallahassee, Wichita, Little Rock. And a few new faces also make an appearance: Reno, TB, Cleveland, Madison, and a few others. While these new characters definitely aren’t as exciting or developed as the original four, they are a welcome addition to the roster and allow for some fantastically humorous moments. Reno is the Eve to Tallahassee’s Adam. She is everything he could ever dream of badass, skilled, strong. They’re a match made in heaven… if only she would take him. TB is Tallahassee’s spitting image. Essentially the same person. Similarly with Columbus and Cleveland. Madison is a ditzy blonde who Columbus hooks up with after Wichita freaks out from the lack of zombies and leaves (yeah, that happens really early on, it’s not a spoiler). The dynamic these new characters bring to the group make for some of the most entertaining scenes in the entire franchise. However, since they are mainly just extensions of the main four, they are pretty thin as individual personas.

The main plot of ZOMBIELAND TOO follows the gang as they attempt to find Little Rock after she ran away with an individual (unnamed due to spoilers). Columbus, Tallahassee, and Wichita embark on a journey that takes them all the way across the country to hopefully save LR from certain death. ... You see, while the regular, lumbering creatures from the first film have no interest in humans anymore, rendering them essentially extinct, they have been replaced by SUPER ZOMBIES — giant, muscular, incredibly tough beings that are only able to be killed through a headshot. A horde of these super-zombies has been migrating from city to city, destroying everything in its wake. And it’s up to the gang to finally put an end to this bloodshed, or face extinction themselves.

Ludens says the sequel will deliver "laughs, thrills, and action", then goes on to dig into their issues with what they know about ZOMBIELAND TOO. Since this person must be working from a draft of the screenplay (assuming they're not just making all of this up), I won't quote that section here because there could be rewrites ahead.

I'm looking forward to a ZOMBIELAND sequel just to see the characters again. If Ludens' report is true, I'm not sure how I feel about the "super zombies" idea, but I'll be able to roll with it if ZOMBIELAND 2 / ZOMBIELAND TOO is as entertaining as its predecessor is.
