Emma Stone Wants New Zombieland Sequel Every 10 Years, Says Director
The second edition of the zombie action comedy is due to hit cinemas on 18 October 2019 and - although it now seems obvious - it looked a lot like it would never happen a while back.
You see, after the success of the original film, which focused on a band of zombie apocalypse survivors who were thrown together, the cast and crew were all up for making another.
Things don't always work out like that, though. As the years dragged on and no sequel was announced, it started to look like it might never get made.
Now, the motley crew of Tallahassee, Columbus, Wichita and Little Rock - aka Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin - are coming back after a decade away, and Stone's director says that she'd be keen to make that a regular occurrence.
Speaking about the possibility of more movies, Fleischer told EW: "We have to see how this one's received and if that's something audiences would want.
"But I think we all had so much fun making this one, we'd be really lucky to get to return to Zombieland.

"Although, I will say, Emma said she thought it would be fun if we did one of these every 10 years.
"Knowing that Woody's just the healthiest guy there is, he's going to outlive all of us, and so we can just keep doing them every 10 years, 'til the end of time."
Righto. Well, that's that sorted then.
As it happens, Fleischer also said that he'd be up for the long haul too, adding: "I can't imagine a better way to look forward to my future than knowing that every 10 years I get to hang out with those guys and make a movie with them again."
Whilst it is all a slightly fanciful idea, we can now officially start looking forward to Double Tap.
The official plot synopsis reads: "Columbus, Tallahassee, Wichita, and Little Rock move to the American heartland as they face off against evolved zombies, fellow survivors and the growing pains of the snarky makeshift family."
That sounds pretty good, right? Evolved zombies? Who wouldn't be up for that?
Let's just hope that we can get another appearance from a potentially zombified Bill Murray thrown in to really make the whole thing come together.
Either way, we'll find out on 18 October.
