“Zombieland” Sequel will be in 3D
I loved this movie, for me it hit perfectly on the funny/gory/weird meter. While I’m sure there are people out there who think 3D films are a gimmick, and to be fair they kinda are, if done well and not over the top stupidly, it can turn out really well….. That was a very long and poorly constructed sentence. I sense my long long dead English teacher is now spinning in her grave.
“Everyone had fun watching (the first) ‘Zombieland’; making it a more visceral experience can only make it better,” said the film’s producer Gavin Polone. “I don’t think you want to see ‘Ordinary People’ in 3-D. But ‘Zombieland’ is clearly one movie that will benefit from (the technique).”
Sony has closed deals with Polone and helmer Ruben Fleischer to return for a sequel to the original, which cost $24 million and has earned $85.2 million worldwide to date (“Zombieland” has only opened in a few territories overseas). The Culver City studio is currently in talks with stars Woody Harrelson and Jesse Eisenberg to reprise their roles as a pair of post-apocalyptic survivors. Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are working on the sequel’s screenplay.
I assure you, they already have my money as I am desperate to learn more rules for survival in the coming zombpocalypse.
