Sony Pictures has given our first look at the long awaited Zombieland sequel now titled Zombieland: Double Tap. Also a Marvel alum has joined the cast.
According to Deadline, Daredevil actress Rosario Dawson is set to join Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, Abigail Breslin, and as well as series newcomer Zoey Deutch in the zombie comedy.
The sequel is from director Ruben Fleischer, and writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese (Deadpool) the team behind the original. He is coming off of Sony’s Venom, which was a big hit with audiences $855.8 million globally, he is not expected back for the sequel.
the film will see the old gang living in the White House before they venture on a journey that will have them crossing paths with some new types of zombie that have managed to evolve since the events of the first movie. It’s also said that Eisenberg’s character Columbus will be getting a new love interest played by Deutch, and that Woody Harrelson’s Tallahassee will “meet his match” when he encounters a “female zombie-hunting badass named Nevada,” which incidentally, sounds like it could be a fitting role for Dawson.
