Woody Harrelson will Fight off Zombies

by Joey Paur

Venkman here with some casting news for a horror, Zombie, comedy movie 'Zombieland' in which Woody Harrelson has been cast in a lead role. Here is what the trades report:

The actor has signed on to star in the horror comedy "Zombieland," which Ruben Fleischer is directing for Columbia Pictures.

Written by the team of Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick ("The Joe Schmo Show"), "Zombieland" revolves around a mismatched pair of survivors who find friendship and redemption in a world overrun by zombies. Harrelson plays one of the men, a zombie fighter named Albuquerque.

This is Ruben Fleischer first big directing gig so he's not feeling the pressure. Most of his directing credit includes 3 episodes of 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' Congrats to him for his first feature film directing gig. We here at geektyrant wish him the best of luck. I love it when new directors get their shot. 

This Zombie movie sounds like it will flow in the same vein as 'Shawn of the Dead'. I hope it ends up being a good movie because I love the Zombie genre. After seeing Harrelson in 'Transsiberian' I remembered how good of an actor he is, I hope that translates well into this Zombie flick.
