"We're going on the 10th anniversary of Zombieland".

"'Zombieland" came out October of 2009", Wernick told Vulture.

"We are sitting on information that we can't entirely share at this moment", he said cryptically, "but we can just say we think fans of Zombieland who have been hoping for a Zombieland 2, that we will grant their wish very, very soon". Reese and Wernick also confirmed that the original Zombieland cast will be returning.

The writer added that the hope is to start filming sometime early next year, with an October 2019 release date in mind.
