This morning we were understandably perplexed to hear Amazon Studios officially announcing the cast and production of its forthcoming ‘Zombieland‘ TV series, given we’d already seen photos from production and read about the new cast some time earlier. Well, now that the dead cat’s out of the bag, how would you like to see the first production photo of the ‘Zombieland’ TV series cast replacing Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone, Jesse Eisenberg and Abigail Breslin? Meet the new ‘Zombieland’ cast inside!
Fans of Ruben Fleischer’s 2009 horror-comedy ‘Zombieland’ have long been anticipating a sequel or development on the proposed TV series, making today’s big reveals a bounty of Twinkies in an apocalyptic wasteland. Not only has Amazon Studios officially declared ‘Zombieland’ among their pilots to be fan-rated for possible production, but the first cast photo has made its way to the net!
Ordered to pilot, the series picks up after the events of the 2009 Ruben Fleischer film, and features a cast comprised of Kirk Ward as Tallahassee, Maiara Walsh as Wichita, Tyler Ross as Columbus, and Izabela Vodovic as Little Rock. Original ‘Zombieland’ writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick wrote the pilot and will executive produce with the movie’s producer, Gavin Polone.
“’Zombieland’ is a fan favorite and we can’t wait to see where this storyline goes in a serialized format,” said Roy Price, director of Amazon Studios earlier today. Along with the studio’s other 12 pilots, the initial episode will be made available to subscribers at a future date, and feedback will decide which series ultimately moves forward with production.
