Still busting undead heads, 10 years later.
It’s been a decade since we were introduced to the quartet of zombie apocalypse survivors at the center of the iconic horror/comedy Zombieland. In that time they—stars Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, and Abigail Breslin—have apparently continued surviving hellscapes of the undead, so we’re getting a sequel and it has a title: Zombieland Double Tap.
The official Zombieland Twitter account revealed the first poster for the sequel Tuesday, cleverly framing it as the current half of a 10-year-challenge comparison.
The 10-year-challenge was a (ultimately controversial) meme that asked users to do just what you see in the tweet, post side-by-side shots of themselves today and a decade ago.
One takeaway from the 2019 Zombieland Double Tap poster is this: these folks look great for people who have presumably been coping with the end of civilization as we know it.
Here’s what we do—and do not—know about Zombieland Double Tap:
- It’s currently filming in Atlanta.
- The original cast is (obviously) back.
- Rosario Dawson has joined the cast in an as-yet unnamed role.
- There haven’t been any plot leaks, but director Ruben Fleischer indicated there will be more zombies. Otherwise, Fleischer told Fandango «it’s been 10 years, so who knows what the world will look like at this point?»
The sequel does have an official release date. Zombieland Double Tap shambles into theaters on October 11, 2019.
