Zoey Deutch Has Joined the Cast of ZOMBIELAND 2
Zoey Deutch (Why Him, Set It Up, Before I Fall) is the latest actress to join director Ruben Fleischer’s Zombieland 2 for Sony Pictures.
Deutch will join the returning cast that includes Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone, and Abigail Breslin. There’s no word on who Deutch will be playing, but it will be interesting to find out what her story is and how she comes in contact with the original group.
The new movie will once again put the focus on comic mayhem, taking the quartet from the White House to the American heartland as they face off against new kinds of zombies that have evolved since the first movie, as well as some new human survivors. But, most of all, according to the studio, they have to face the growing pains of their own snarky, makeshift family.
There are some other details regarding the film and the characters that you can read up on here. Columbia Pictures president Sanford Panitch said in a previous statement,
"This is one of those projects that fans have wanted to see happen for a long time – and no one wanted to see it happen more than Emma, Woody, Jesse, and Abigail. These are some of the most in-demand actors and I think they are making this movie because they love these characters. We are thrilled Ruben was willing to come back to direct the sequel, as his work on Venom has been truly amazing."
Zombieland 2 was written by Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese and is scheduled to hit theaters on October 11th, 2019.
