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.
Gavin Polone will executive produce alongside Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. It isn't known if casting has already started. The series was first brought to CBS, but they passed on the project. Syfy was also considering the show, although a deal could not be reached. If Amazon orders Zombieland to series, it will air on the website's instant video service.
