Columbia Pictures revealed the poster for Zombieland, the upcoming comedy with Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg (Adventureland), Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine), and Emma Stone (Superbad) — and a possible cameo from Matthew McConaughey. For a zombie movie, it has a surprising amount of Hollywood talent, especially with a first-time director in Ruben Fleischer.
Harrelson explained to ShockTilYouDrop that his involvement in the movie started with the script, written by former reality TV writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick:
No, I never thought about [being in a zombie movie] honestly until I saw and read the script. I thought the script was phenomenal. And then I met Reuben and really liked him and I thought this guy is a go-getter. He's really going to make a terrific movie and so far I'm really impressed with him.
Early buzz on Zombieland has been very positive. A script review praised Zombieland, saying the movie "has all the potential to be a terrific comedy that just happens to involve zombies the way The Blues Brothers is a terrific comedy that just happens to be a car chase movie, or the original Caddyshack was a terrific comedy that masqueraded itself as a sports movie."
That's pretty high praise. Particularly for a zombie movie.
