Load up on Twinkies, cause this could be happening!
Ahead of Deadpool 2‘s release, it’s worth remembering that screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (who also penned the first film) have enjoyed a jam-packed decade since they broke though with 2009’s Zombieland. That beloved film, which saw a Twinkie-obsessed Woody Harrelson lead a team of survivors that included Emma Stone, Jesse Eisenberg, and Abigail Breslin, put a wry spin on the flesh-eating apocalypse.
Well, Reese and Wernick haven’t forgotten about their baby. The latter spoke with Vulture and believes a second installment is coming, and not only do they want to shoot in 2019, but Wernick says the original cast might be on board:
“We’re going on the tenth anniversary of Zombieland. Zombieland came out October of 2009. We don’t know what you get someone for their tenth anniversary, but it may be a Zombieland 2 … The hope is that we’re shooting that thing early 2019 for an October of ’19 release … With the original cast, by the way.”
Wernick then added that he couldn’t share any more revelations, but that he’s also “sitting on information” that he’s not allowed to reveal right now.
