Zombieland seemingly came out of nowhere and injected the careers of Jessie Eisenberg, Emma Stone, Woody Harrelson and director Ruben Fleischer full of adrenaline. All involved parties have gone to new height after that film as it made over $100 million at the box office.
So, of course there would be a sequel, right? Wrong. The principal stars are busy, so a sequel would be very hard to put together. The longer they wait, the less likely it is to happen too. Instead, the producers may opt for a TV show set in the same universe. Is this Fox’s reaction to the success of The Walking Dead? Probably, but can you blame them?
The show would be 30-minutes long and start up in the 2012-2013 season. One of the show’s writers, Rhett Reese, gives a little insight into a potential show:
We always thought [it should be a TV series]. If you watch the movie with that in mind, you will see some remnants of the television show. We have the ‘Zombie Kill of the Week,’ which was always intended to happen every week. The movie ends on a cliffhanger; it doesn’t have a real resolution
