Patrick Swayze who past away earlier this week almost had a cool cameo in Zombieland!
Writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick first had Patrick Swayze in mind for their Horror/Comedy Zombieland!
"That was many years ago, before he got sick,"
explains Reese. The script got its start as a television pilot before it was groomed for the big screen and found its stars Jesse Eisenberg (as Columbus) and Woody Harrelson(as Tallahassee).
"It was [going to be] a Patrick Swayze zombie. They got attacked by him zombified and we had these wonderful moments where they found a potter's wheel and there's Columbus on the wheel and these other hands come up behind him and it's Patrick Swayze the zombie. Ultimately, they fight and Patrick bull rushes Tallahassee who grabs him and lifts him into the air, a la Jennifer Grey, and smashes him into a pillar."
