Last week, we all received the disapointing news that a sequel to the cult hit Zombieland probably wasn't going to get a sequel, which really can't be more depressing in a world where James Cameron is planning on making at least four more Avatar movies. To those who really just need a new fix of Zombies, though, you may be in luck, because the story will be continued on as a television series.
At least, that's what they're calling it, though it might be better referred to as a web series, because it's being produced by Amazon. The episodes will all be thirty minutes long (no commercial, remember!), and will feature new characters in addition to the ones we saw in the original film.
The casting sheets for the film have leaked, confirming two knew characters whose biggest problem with the Zombie apocalypse is that their iphones no longer work, something you can read more about here.
Sure, TV shows based on movies don't always work the best, but it being made by amazon means that we have more runtime to develop the characters, and without the usual TV studio influence. The internet really is the next entertainment frontier, and it's about time shows made this kind of jump. Here's hoping it works out!
