    “VENOM” DIRECTOR, “DEADPOOL” WRITERS UNITE FOR ZOMBIELAND: DOUBLE TAP


     

    No one could have predicted the cult following that would transpire when the first Zombieland was released. The now iconic zomedy, a genre-bending horror/comedy that cheekily chronicled the fight between the living dead and the surviving *****-kickers, ushered in a new zombie era.

    With director Ruben Fleischer, writers Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick’s zippy screenplay, and an insanely talented and kinetic cast – Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, and Abigail Breslin — Zombieland achieved critical and commercial success, grossing over 100 million dollars worldwide.


    Such a beloved cult classic surely warranted its own franchise, so why did it take over 10 years for fans to get the sequel Zombieland: Double Tap?  “The challenge was getting a script worthy of making a second movie,” says Fleischer.  

    For the director, who has gone on to helm many films including last year’s blockbuster Venom, it was also imperative that the original Zombieland cast approved. Zombieland had been his directorial debut and trying to create that lightning in a bottle for a second time would be like, well, resurrecting the dead. “Their feeling was the first movie was so beloved, we can’t enter into this unless we have one that’s at least as good if not better than the original.”

    Reese & Wernick were inundated with projects over the course of the past 10 years (including the mega-hit Deadpool franchise), but the cast and crew waited patiently for them to work their magic again. “There were probably 10 scripts over the last 10 years, but it never felt worthy of making a sequel,” says Eisenberg. “Finally the script was just so great, like it would be a fantastic stand-alone movie even if it wasn’t associated with the first one.”

    “We had to wink a little bit at the success of the genre, because we feel like we did reinvigorate the genre in 2009,” says Reese. “So when we revisited the genre, I think it was more a question of, how do we find an original story and also justify why we had been away for ten years in the mind of the audience?”

    “It’s a mix of comedy and action and drama and romance. The tone’s a delicate dance, especially on this one,” says Wernick. “That includes some of the nods we make to Walking Dead comic and in the White House. The zombie genre has evolved, and so we’re just trying to catch people up with the times.”

    “They made it so special, and I think that's the reason that we all wanted to come back,” says Emma Stone. Woody Harrelson, who Fleischer says was the most discerning about the sequel script, agrees: “They hit a homerun. They're just incredible writers. And they finally cracked it.”

    Says Wernick, “We really wanted to tap into the idea that the post apocalypse is a still wonderful albeit lawless place. Think about it – you could drive any car you want, live where ever you want, or even kill with reckless abandon.  Anything goes.”

    Of course, it didn’t hurt that the cast had developed into a family of their own, staying in touch over the years and carrying their onscreen chemistry to real life.

    “It’s just such a fun dynamic,” says Eisenberg. “The random luck of us being nice, normal, funny people makes it work so well. You can put us in any kind of context, and it will always be interesting and entertaining because the interactions we have are endlessly workable.”  

    “We've all remained pretty close, so it doesn't really feel like a reunion in the sense that we haven't talked to each other, including Ruben. It feels like getting to hang out with my buddies and goof around. It's been really special and very uplifting to be around everybody again,” says Stone, who was the first to acknowledge the 10-year anniversary.

    “Emma said, ‘This gives it real purpose, and think we should make Zombieland every 10 years,’” says Fleischer.  “We all know Woody’s going to outlive us all, so we can just do this every ten years until one of us, probably not Woody, is gone. And so, I'm on board with that.”

    EISENBERG, HARRELSON ARE RELUCTANT SIDEKICKS IN ZOMBIELAND: DOUBLE TAP 






    Woody Harrelson and Jesse Eisenberg reprise their original characters Tallahassee and Columbus, respectively, in Columbia Pictures’ action comedy Zombieland: Double Tap.



    One of the hallmarks of the original Zombieland is The Rules, Columbus’s guidelines on how to survive a zombie apocalypse that pop up on the screen during key moments. The most important? The Double Tap: taking great care to shoot a zombie twice to assure their extermination. Unfortunately for our heroes, the zombies have now evolved and they’re now faced with the T-800s, a Terminator-like species that’s relentless and notoriously hard to kill.

    For Columbus, who lived and not died by his Rules, adapting to the new landscape has its challenges. Not only have zombies evolved, but so have the core four, throwing his comfortable life into turmoil. “My character in this movie is a little more confident, but it’s misplaced confidence. He’s been with Woody’s character now for 10 years, but Woody doesn’t still accept that my character’s a worthy sidekick,” says Eisenberg.

    “Columbus is a person who has survived this Apocalypse through his own logic rather than brute strength or luck. Like, what would an average person do if they were thrown into this world? If they’re a smart, nervous, humble person, they would try to reason their way through it,” he continues. “All of his OCD and intense planning and attention to detail have allowed him to survive through this list of rules that he’s created. He’s an unlikely survivor of this world, but as you learn about him, you realize, Oh, this is a kind of guy who might actually make it.”

    Tallahassee, on the other hand, has unpredictably settled into his new family—despite his wandering nature. He spends most of his time in the garage with the presidential motorcade, pimping up his new ride, The Beast, a presidential limo on steroids. As he has become a father figure to Little Rock (Abigail Breslin), he’s grown into the role, so obviously he bristles when she wants to spread her wings.

    “At first, Tallahassee thinks that they have a shared connection and understanding about Elvis and he thinks maybe she's gone to Graceland,” says Harrelson. “We’re not sure she'll be safe at Graceland but we want to make sure that we just find her.” Tallahassee bristles again when he realizes how comfortable he has become with this life he never intended to lead.

    For Harrelson, a return to Zombieland also meant a return to fun. “People always ask me: what movie was the most fun for you to make? And I think the first Zombieland was in the top three of the funniest movies I ever made,” he says. Of course, it didn’t hurt that the cast had developed into a family of their own, staying in touch over the years and carrying their onscreen chemistry to real life.

    “It’s just such a fun dynamic,” says Eisenberg. “The random luck of us being nice, normal, funny people makes it work so well. You can put us in any kind of context, and it will always be interesting and entertaining because the interactions we have are endlessly workable.”

    EMMA STONE, ABIGAIL BRESLIN ASSERT THEIR CHOICES IN ZOMBIELAND: DOUBLE TAP 

     

    Emma Stone (La La Land, The Amazing Spider-Man) and Abigail Breslin (TV’s Scream Queens) are back for more zombie post-apocalyptic shenanigans, in Columbia Pictures’ action comedy Zombieland: Double Tap.





    In the film, the core four characters Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg), Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson), Wichita (Stone), and Little Rock (Breslin) have settled into their little family and new life together at The White House. Yes, The White House.

    But, as is the case with all families, they’ve begun to have a few issues. That’s how you know it’s a real family, right? Columbus and Wichita have coupled up in the Lincoln bedroom, and while Columbus is ready to take the next step in commitment, Wichita is at heart a loner and is uneasy about their domesticity. Tallahassee, meanwhile, has also reluctantly become a willing family member and father figure to Little Rock, who has grown into a young woman. Teen angst on full throttle, Little Rock itches to meet people her own age and get out of the stuffy White House.

    Which really pisses Tallahassee off. Wichita and Little Rock can’t deal and take off, but the road is still bumpy—and not just because it’s littered with undead carcasses. And when Little Rock abandons Wichita to run off with neo-hippie pacifist Berkeley (Avan Jogia), Wichita returns to the White House for reinforcements to go find her.

    “Ten years later, they're still a family unit. But they're struggling with dynamics between them,” says Stone. “As the years have gone on, zombies have evolved a bit. There's a group of zombies that are much harder to deal with. So they're learning this sort of new landscape of the zombies, and some of The Rules that used to work don't work as well anymore.”

    Much like Tallahassee, Wichita planned to go her own way—albeit with Little Rock, her partner in crime. So when Columbus proposes to her, with the Hope diamond naturally, she’s so thrown for a loop, she runs. “She freaks out at the idea of a commitment like that, even though there’s no other people on the planet,” says Eisenberg.

    But not before she leaves a very short goodbye note. Ouch. “Wichita is still wanting to be a lone wolf, even though she's been in a family and a relationship with Columbus for 10 years,” says Stone. But she soon heads back to White House sweet White House when Little Rock abandons her for a free-loving, free-wheeling granola dude, Berkeley… and leaves a note. It runs in the family.

    In Philippine cinemas October 23, Zombieland: Double Tap is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.
