Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer returns to helm the sequel, re-teaming with original writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese. The writers are known for their recent work in Deadpool movies. Gavin Polone returns as producer, while Reese and Wernick act as the executive producers.

The first Zombieland saw Tallahassee (Harrelson) and Columbus (Eisenberg) meet a pair of sisters in Wichita (Stone) and Little Rock (Breslin) during the zombie apocalypse. In this Sony Pictures sequel, the zombie killers must face off against a new kind of zombies that have evolved since the first movie, as well as some human survivors.

Zombieland: Double Tap started production in January and is scheduled for release in October, exactly 10 years after the original.

Middleditch will next be seen in Godzilla: King of the Monsters. He stars in HBO’s Silicon Valley, for which he received a 2016 Emmy award nomination.
