Jesse Eisenberg Goes from Adventureland to Zombieland
Posted 06.13.09 by Ryan
Jesse Eisenberg's last movie, Adventureland, saw him romancing Twilight's Kristen Stewart. Hopefully, Stewart's stories of the undead prepared Eisenberg for his next project, Zombieland. The comedy finds Eisenberg teaming up with Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone (Superbad and the upcoming Sucker Punch), and Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine) on a cross-country trip of survival in a world overrun with zombies.
Let's just hope Eisenberg is able to leave the world of the undead, unlike Harrelson who mistook a paparazzi photographer for a zombie at La Guardia airport. America's answer to Shaun of the Dead is directed by newcomer Ruben Fleischer, producer of MTV's Fantasy Factory. Horror comedies are often difficult to pull off, but Zombieland has a secret weapon: a cameo featuring Bill Murray as a zombie.
The trailer for Zombieland is set to premiere before the Jack Black comedy Year One, which won't open until June 19. So, until then, check out these first-look photos of the movie.
