"Zombieland" revolves around a mismatched pair of survivors who find friendship and redemption in a world overrun by zombies. Woody Harrelson plays one of the men, a zombie fighter named Albuquerque.
The proposed Zombieland TV series is moving forward at a rapid pace, after the news earlier this week that Amazon is in talks to produce the half-hour horror comedy. Tucker and Dale Vs. Evil director, Eli Craig, is now in talks to direct. It isn't known if he will only direct the pilot, or multiple episodes in the first season.
Zombieland screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick wrote the pilot script, which continues the adventures of Tallahassee, Columbus, Wichita, and Little Rock from the 2009 horror-comedy. The series will also include new characters Fred and Ainsley, who were office workers before the zombie outbreak. Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer will not be involved with the series, due to his commitments to several other pilots.Read More
Last week, we reported that a TV series based on Zombieland is still moving forward, although it is unclear which network the show will be produced under.
Today, we have word that Zombieland is being developed as an original series for the Internet giant Amazon. If the show lands a series commitment, it will air on the website's instant video service. Back in October 2011, the pilot was being developed at Fox.Read More
Back in October 2011, we reported that the hit horror-comedy Zombieland was being adapted into a TV series by Fox and Sony Pictures Television. The project is still alive and well, with casting currently under way. Pages from Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick's Zombieland pilot script have leaked, which reveal characters from the movie such as Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson), Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg), Wichita (Emma Stone), and Little Rock (Abigail Breslin) will be altered slightly. Take a look at these character breakdowns, including information on new characters Fred and Ainsley."Tallahassee is still kind of a snarky weirdo, but he seems to have a much less spiky relationship with Columbus. He and Columbus have a pretty amusing thing where they riff on the fact that Steven Seagal movies always have three-word titles like "Marked for Justice" or "May Cause Diarrhea." But Tallahassee also dispenses homespun wisdom about how to feel happy with your life. He also tells a weird story about being in a trailer park with a perpetually nude Matthew McConaughey. He also has a somewhat heartwarming scene where he tells Columbus that he's been wandering aimlessly for a long time, but maybe he's been put here for a reason - to help Columbus and the others.
Columbus is much the same, except that he tracks down his grandma and grandpa (Bubbie and Peepaw) only to find them recently zombiefied. Also, Columbus is trying to deal with his newfound relationship with Wichita, after their first kiss. He has started calling her "Krista," her real name - but there are some problems, especially after she finds him reading a book about fatherhood. He tries to organize a romantic scavenger hunt for her in the IKEA they're camping out in, but it goes kind of horribly.Read More

Bill 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.Read More
