Zombieland: Double Tap is in cinemas this October, a decade after the first, and it seems that Emma Stone is keen to keep the franchise rolling with a new film every ten years.
Director Ruben Fleischer revealed this intriguing bit of information in a recent Entertainment Weekly interview, when explaining why it took so long to make a sequel.
He said that the filmmakers were all excited to return to the world of Zombieland, but wanted to wait until they had a story that was actually worthy of getting the gang back together.
When asked if we might get to check in with the crew again a few years down the line, Fleischer said it’s a real possibility, telling the publication:
“We have to see how this one’s received and if that’s something audiences would want. But I think we all had so much fun making this one, we’d be really lucky to get to return to Zombieland. Although, I will say, Emma said, she thought it would be fun if we did one of these every ten years. Knowing that Woody‘s just the healthiest guy there is, he’s going to outlive all of us, and so we can just keep doing them every ten years, ’til the end of time.”
The director said he’d be happy to know he gets to hang out with the cast every ten years and make another movie, and honestly, that sounds like a pretty solid goal.
Zombieland: Double Tap, which brings Emma Stone, Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg and Abigail Breslin back together, is out in Australia on October 10.
