One of the highlights of this past year was just how great Zombieland was. It really just popped out of nowhere and managed to scare up some decent box office returns ($84 million worldwide on a $23 million budget) on its way to becoming the top grossing zombie film of all time. The flick is a great combination of horror and comedy, something quite rare these days, and it also put Woody Harrelson back on the map as a leading man.
It makes sense that with the films success that there would be talk of a sequel, and wouldn’t you know it, there is. Apparently all of the principles are eager to return (Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, and Abigail Breslin) and the latest word is that the filmmakers are hoping to the 3D route for the next one. Let’s hope this turns out better than the last zombie flick that got the 3D treatment.
You can take a pass on Night Of The Living Dead 3D, and mark February 2nd 2010 down as the day that Zombieland hits DVD and Blu-Ray.
