(Welcome to Will There Be a Sequel?, a series where we examine what follows and provide an answer to that topic.)
When “Zombieland” was released in the fall of 2009, it took both critics and audiences by surprise. It prepared the path for a sequel by being enjoyable, imaginative, and (maybe most significantly) successful. even if it was ten years after the debut of the first. Ten years later, “Zombieland: Double Tap” came out, and as luck would have it, lightning struck again. Most reviewers and fans liked it. Sony liked the fact that it was profitable. What remains to be determined is if “Zombieland 3” will be released.
Here is all the information we currently have about a third “Zombieland” film.
Did Zombieland: Double Tap Leave the Door Open for a Sequel?
We should talk about where “Zombieland: Double Tap” left off before delving into what has been said on the record by those involved. Throughout the film, Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson), Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg), Wichita (Emma Stone), and Little Rock (Abigail Breslin) all encountered challenges. a severance. Little Rock wants to mature. It became uncertain. But in the end, they all joined forces to take part in Babylon’s great battle against the zombie invasion.
Most significantly, all of our heroes made it through the ordeal. Zombies are still prevalent worldwide. In other words, the possibility of some sort of continuation in the future was left wide open. There should be several straightforward methods to do it, assuming that’s something Sony wants to investigate.
The Team Has Ideas for Zombieland 3
Although there hasn’t been much discussion of it lately, “Zombieland 3” is unquestionably on the horizon. Director Ruben Fleischer, who oversaw both films in the series, has publicly stated that he has some ideas on where to go with the plot. When “Zombieland: Double Tap” was just entering theatres, I spoke with the director about some of his hazy plans for the potential sequel. He said things like:
“One idea that was brought up that I think would be cool is seeing what’s going on in other parts of the world, which would be exciting for me. Let’s imagine the movie beginning with them all getting off a boat and landing someplace and seeing what that’s like. You know, just not shooting me in Atlanta again. Hawaii sounds nice this time of year… nights in February in Atlanta are really cold. I wouldn’t be made to see what’s going on in Turks and Caicos. What they’re zombie virus was.”
In fact, zombies have taken over the entire world, and what we have seen so far is but a small portion of it. There is a lot to discover. Fleischer clarified that the group might reunite in 2029 to make another voyage to Z-Land in an interview with Entertainment Weekly:
“Emma said, she thought it would be fun if we did one of these every 10 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 10 years, ’til the end of time.”
In light of all of this, it can be said that people concerned are interested, and there are at least some hazy tale concepts flying around. It could absolutely happen. However, Sony hasn’t made any formal confirmations as of the time of this writing. Therefore, everything is still hypothetical.
Is Zombieland 3 Good Business?
Is it profitable? might be the main concern for those who wish to see a “Zombieland” sequel. Let’s examine the figures.
From a budget that was reportedly in the $24 million to $102 million range, “Zombieland” made $102 million at the box office. Additionally, it appears to have made a very respectable $53 million on the home video market. It fared pretty well. Without a question. Another successful movie was “Zombieland: Double Tap,” which made $122 million at the box office. The home video market, however, has seen a dramatic decline during the past ten years. On home video, it reportedly brought about $16 million. The sequel cost $45 million before marketing, making it significantly more expensive. Even still, Sony undoubtedly made a sizable profit from those refunds.
The straightforward response to the query? Yes. This seems like a respectable business idea on paper. We are unfortunately working with some of the busiest people in the entertainment industry. Along with the cast, “Deadpool” writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese are in high demand. So it can be challenging to gather everyone. also pricey. Therefore, even while it’s possible that this will happen at some point in the future, it probably won’t happen anytime soon.
