The much-anticipated, long-awaited Zombieland sequel, Zombieland: Double Tap, has just released an official trailer and poster along with a handful of photos. The original zombie comedy arrived on October 2, 2009 and grossed $24 million over its first weekend in theaters, domestically. The R-rated horror comedy went on to ring up $102 million worldwide before exiting theaters.
The Zombieland sequel will hit theaters on October 18, 2019, a decade after the first film.
Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer (Venom) returns, reuniting with screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (Deadpool). Gavin Polone produces and Fleischer, Wernick, Reese, Rebecca Rivo, and David Bernad executive produce. Fleischer’s behind the scenes team includes director of photography Chung-hoon Chung, editor Dirk Westervelt, production designer Martin Whist, and costume designer Christine Wada.
Returning cast members include Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Abigail Breslin, and Emma Stone. Rosario Dawson, Zoey Deutch, Luke Wilson, Thomas Middleditch, and Avan Jogia join the zombie hunters for the 2019 sequel.
In the sequel, written by Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick and Dave Callaham, through comic mayhem that stretches from the White House and through the heartland, these four slayers must face off against the many new kinds of zombies that have evolved since the first movie, as well as some new human survivors. But most of all, they have to face the growing pains of their own snarky, makeshift family.
