ZOMBIELAND 2 may not happen; Woody Harrelson not sure he feels like “a sequels guy”
ZOMBIELAND 2 is not definitely going to happen! For fans like myself, this is not the news I was hoping to hear. Woody Harrelson recently talked about the prospect of a sequel in an interview with TotalFilm.
Harrelson was amazing in the role of Tallahassee and starred opposite Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, and Abigail Breslin in the original film that had them travelling on a cross-country zombie survival trip. The film was a perfect mix of horror and comedy with a nice dose of action. Fans are not the only ones excited about the possibility of a sequel. Its box office take has got to have the studio doing all it can to make a sequel come to life.
According to Harrelson, he is not sure about a sequel. Here is what he had to say about the first film:
“I didn’t even want to read the script…Then as it turns out, I read the script and I thought it was phenomenal, really funny…Usually, if I theoretically reject it, I’m right, but this one I was dead wrong. And it might be the first movie I do a sequel to.”
Here is what the actor had to say when asked if a sequel was definitely going to happen:
“I’m sure it will happen if everyone does it, but I’m not sure it’s the right thing to do.”
“It’s one thing to do it when it came out real good and it made a lot of people laugh, but then to do a sequel…99 out of 100 are worse by a lot. So I don’t know.”
“I don’t feel like a sequels guy.”
I am sure hoping that Woody was having an off day when he did the interview or was just being coy and that he agrees to a sequel. If he is not in the film, there is not point in a sequel (according to me)!
