Zombieland 2 gets a new writer

Zombieland 2 has been motionless for some time now, but the corpse appears to be stirring with the appointment of a brand new writer to the project.

Deadline reports that Sony has hired Dave Callaham to write a script for the sequel, having previously worked on the likes of Doom and The Expendables .

Better still is the news that Ruben Fleischer is in place to return to the director’s chair, although the report does make it clear that no deal has been officially struck at this stage.

Plot-wise, there are no official details confirmed as yet, although when asked previously about his initial idea for the sequel, Fleisher had suggested that the original characters would return.

Whether or not that is still the case remains to be seen, but with the likes of Jesse Eisenberg and Emma Stone in far greater demand now than they were then, don’t be surprised to see a few new faces pop up…
