Jesse Eisenberg is in final negotiations to join Woody Harrelson in Columbia Pictures horror comedy Zombieland, which centers on a mismatched pair of survivors who find friendship and redemption in a world overrun by zombies, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Eisenberg is in negotiations to play Flagstaff, a terrified shut-in whose cowardice makes him an expert at surviving the zombies but who is forced out of his shell to join the band of survivors, which includes Harrelson.

Ruben Fleischer is directing Zombieland from a script by the writing team Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.

No word on when production will begin.
