According to a recent report by Broadcastnow.co.uk, online retail giant Amazon is planning a serial adaptation of Ruben Fleischer’s survival horror-comedy movie Zombieland. A small screen series seems to be more likely now that Fleischer himself has confirmed that the likelihood of a sequel is slim.
Zombieland starred Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, Woody Harrelson, and Abigail Breslin as a ragtag group of survivors in a post-zombie apocalypse version of the US. The movie was a critical and commercial success, and it felt at the time that a franchise around it is needed.
At the moment, Amazon’s project is at a very early stage, and there’s no word yet on whether any of the film’s main cast will be returning to reprise their roles, and whether it’s going to be as a regular or as a cameo. Rumors are floating around that the original characters will be returning alongside new ones.
