The zombies are headed back to Atlanta, and no, we’re not talking about The Walking Dead – though that is scheduled to begin pre-production in May for Season 7. We’re talking about Zombieland 2! The sequel to the original 2009 film, which was also filmed in Georgia, is set to begin filming in Atlanta in mid-August.
The sequel is expected to reunite four of the original characters including Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson), Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg), Wichita (Emma Stone), and Little Rock (Abigail Breslin). The film’s original director Ruben Fleischer is also returning, and the script is being written by Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese (Zombieland, Deadpool), alongside Dave Callahan (The Expendables Trilogy).
In early April, Sony released the film’s logo at CinemaCon, in addition to logos for Blade Runner 2 and Bad Boys III. It’s not a whole lot at this stage to get fans excited, but those of you that live in Atlanta – keep your eyes open this summer for filming around the city. Since The Walking Dead will also be back in full production at the time of filming, we have to wonder…. perhaps there will be a cameo?
