Harrison Ford and Anthony Hopkins Wanted for ‘Zombieland 2’

Harrison Ford wanted for Zombieland 2 cameoBill Murray's cameo was a welcome and hilarious surprise in Zombieland. But it may be one of the last, great cinematic reveals. As the recent Mel Gibson/Bill Clinton cameo news in The Hangover Part II has shown, studios are out to ruin their own surprises. And that is certainly the case with Sony Pictures' Zombieland 2.

Bloody Disgusting has learned that director Ruben Fleischer intends to one-up the Bill Murray cameo magic he captured with his first film, and that Harrison Ford and Anthony Hopkins are the two leading choices to appear as themselves in Zombieland 2. Neither actor has signed on at this point. But it surely won't be a surprise by the time this sequel hits theater screens.

The script for Zombieland 2 will also introduce a new lead villain with comedic roots, and a handsome rival who will be going head-to-head with Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson). At this time, Harrelson and Jesse Eisenberg are the only two actors officially signed to appear in the sequel.

Zombieland was released October 2nd, 2009.

Zombieland 2 is in development .

    sounds awesome. though i do agree that they need to STOP letting us know who's going to be popping up in movies. it kinda takes the fun out of it when you see the movie. either way i'll be seeing this, i loved the first one.

                Sh*t, I just read @Zany's comment. F*cking A!. Bruce would be killer, and a perfect homage to the Evil Dead trilogy. Hell, he can even say, "Hail the King, baby" or something. Ahhh, good one.

                  Ford, hands down. Lol.

                  But really why give this away? Look at Se7en and how Spacey was a hidden factor until the last act of the film.

                                          You can't complain about studios revealing their cameos movieweb. Not if you yourselves are gonna spoil them for everyone by putting up articles about it. I would have never have learned of this news if you had'nt put it on the front page. haha
