Sequels are often maligned and rarely live up to the original film on which they are based. Many sequels are thrown together, poorly written, low budget attempts to capitalize on the success of the original. However, that’s not always the case.
We spoke with Zombieland writers and creators Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick about the many different versions of their story, what we can expect from a TV series, and what it is like working with Amazon.
It's finally here: Zombieland. The Amazon Studios pilot from the creators of the original 2009 film is available to stream, for free, on Amazon Instant Video.
In 2009, there was Zombieland the movie. In 2013, after failed attempts to get a sequel, a network series, and an animated series going, screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick took their script to Amazon Studios to go into development. The trailer is out now, and the pilot episode is supposed to be available online starting April 19th.
So now that we have the Zombieland TV show cast and the first images from the set of the pilot episode have emerged, it’s time for some teaser art.
Things are rolling along for Columbus, Wichita, Little Rock and Tallahassee on the set of Amazon’s Zombieland TV series.
Another big step forward for Amazon's Zombieland series: they have cast Wichita.
Just after the report that Amazon is looking to launch a Zombieland web series, news comes that leads have been cast for the pilot.
Another chance for a "Zombieland" resurrection?
While Ruben Fleischer’s Zombieland sequel probably won’t be happening, it looks like the rumored TV show may be moving forward.
