It was recently revealed that a TV series based on Ruben Fleischer’s popular 2009 horror comedy Zombieland was in the works and last week io9 claimed to have casting sheets for the proposed new TV show that featured very detailed character breakdowns which would include familiar characters from the feature film, alongside new ones.
Fleischer’s original Zombieland starred Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network), Emma Stone (The Amazing Spider-Man), Woody Harrelson (The Hunger Games) and Abigail Breslin (My Sister’s Keeper). The film revolved around a shy student (Eisenberg) trying to reach his family in Ohio and a gun-toting tough guy (Harrelson) looking for the last Twinkie, as well as two sisters (Stone & Breslin) who were trying to get to an amusement park. The oddball individuals soon join forces to travel across a zombie-filled America.
Broadcast Now has revealed further information and it appears the new TV show is following a new and growing trend and is being developed by an online outlet in the form of Amazon. The show will run as thirty minute episodes and will be in a similar vein to the feature film, blending horror and comedy.
