"We're going on the tenth anniversary of Zombieland. Zombieland came out October of 2009. We don't know what you get someone for their tenth anniversary, but it may be a Zombieland 2," Wernick told Vulture.

"The hope is that we're shooting that thing early 2019 for an October of 2019 release... With the original cast, by the way," he added.

Zombieland, which follows a group of survivors of a zombie-apocalypse, was a surprise hit at the box office, earning USD 102 million against a budget of USD 23.6 million.

Wernick did not share any other details from the new project but said, "We are sitting on information that we can't entirely share at this moment, but we can just say we think fans of Zombieland who have been hoping for a Zombieland 2, that we will grant their wish very, very soon.
