It’s been a dry few years but it seems that we are finally making some progress towards getting more from the universe of everyone’s favorite US zomedy, “Zombieland”.

Between Amazon and Sony Pictures, they are looking to put together a TV series based on the movie with the original writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick on board as writers/co-executive producers as well as the original producer Gavin Polone, finally realising the trio’s dream to take it to the small screen (as was originally intended).

Perhaps most excitingly, Eli Craig famed for the brilliant comedy horror “Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil” is in talk to direct the series and has already indicated he is a big fan of the film. It is unclear whether the original cast including Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin are intended to appear but we can always dream.

Now that sounds like a plan!
