Zombieland

It’s being reported that Fox Broadcasting, along with Sony Pictures Television, is developing a new TV series based on the hit 2009 horror–comedy, Zombieland, with screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick involved as well.

The movie starred Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone, and Abigail Breslin as survivors of the zombie apocalypse who cross paths on their way to different destinations.

For those who don’t know, CBS initially ordered a pilot episode of a Zombieland series back in 2005 but that eventually fell through, opening the door for a movie which went on to become a surprise hit, bringing in over $100 million in worldwide box office.

At the moment, the plan appears to be to jump on the already existing popularity of zombies on TV seen with AMC’s The Walking Dead, which wasn’t there in ’05. But instead of competing with that show, the proposed Zombieland series would be more of a comedy and each episode would only run 30 minutes. If all goes well, the hopes are to have the show ready for the 2012–2013 season.

But with this potentially good news comes some bad news, as well. It appears that if a Zombieland TV series is made, the long–planned movie sequel, Zombieland 2, would not happen, according to producer Gavin Polone.

I don’t know about you but a zombie comedy on Fox sounds a little cheesy—I’d much rather see a movie sequel with the stars and humor the first movie was able to offer than some kind of zombie sitcom. Perhaps that’s just me.

What are your thoughts on a Zombieland TV series? Would you prefer it over a sequel to the movie?
