Good things come to those who wait, and fans of post-apocalyptic action-comedy Zombieland have been waiting a long time for a sequel, like wasteland scroungers stumbling toward water. There’s an oasis on the horizon, however, as Zombieland: Double Tap hits theaters October 18. Most sequels aren’t as good as the original, but we’ve got reason to believe Double Tap will blow us away.
For starters, the gang’s all here. The zombie-slaying misfits Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson), Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg), Little Rock (Abigail Breslin), and Wichita (Emma Stone) are back, still kicking zombie ass and … not taking names, actually, since zombies don’t tend to have them. Director Ruben Fleischer and screenwriters Dave Callaham and Rhett Reese are back as well. Meanwhile, there are some new faces in the mix, including Madison (Zoey Deutch), Nevada (Rosario Dawson), Albuquerque (Luke Wilson), and Flagstaff (Thomas Middleditch).
How do you do a zombie sequel without beating a dead horse? New zombies! Double Tap will featured evolved, deadlier zombies for the heroes to fight. Of course, new problems demand new tools, and the crew will have new wheels to drive – including a presidential limo – as they traverse America. Finally, don’t forget the rules of Zombieland; you’ll need ‘em if you want to survive.
