With the release of “Venom” only a few weeks away, the film’s director Ruben Fleischer has begun doing early press for the film and once his media commitments are finished he’ll turn his attention towards the long in the works “Zombieland” sequel.
That film, set to arrive a decade after the original post-apocalyptic horror comedy, got the green light back in July and Fleischer has given an update to Fandango on where things are right now – barely containing his excitement that it is finally set to happen at last:
“I’m thrilled. We’re already actually starting Zombieland. I’ve been scouting and storyboarding and getting it going, and to get to work with that cast again is just an absolute dream come true. It’s been really exciting starting to think about that movie, and to get to work with Emma, Jesse, Woody and Abigail once again is truly a dream come true. Yeah, we’re just at the very early stages, but we have an amazing script, and we’re going to start shooting in Georgia in January.”
Fleischer helms from a script from original writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese and the project is slated to open October 11th next year.
