‘Zombieland: Double Tap’ Adds Luke Wilson to Cast

Feb 22, 2019

Luke Wilson has come aboard the increasingly stacked cast of the long-anticipated sequel ‘Zombieland: Double Tap.’

Sony Pictures is finally making the follow-up to the post-apocalyptic zombie comedy from 2009. Original stars Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin are returning.

Additionally, Ruben Fleischer returns to direct the sequel. He recently directed ‘Venom,’ also from Sony. Lastly, in terms of returning people, original ‘Zombieland’ scribes Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese did the final draft of the screenplay. They recently did ‘Deadpool 2’ as well as the first ‘Deadpool.’ Dave Callaham (The Expendables,’ ‘Wonder Woman 1984’) wrote the original draft.

Moreover, the premise of the film is below:

“The sequel centers on the comic mayhem that stretches from the White House and through the heartland. The zombie slayers must face off against the many new kinds of zombies that have evolved since the first movie, as well as some new human survivors. Most of all, they have to face the growing pains of their own snarky, makeshift family.”

Wilson joins franchise newcomers Zoey Deutch, Avan Jogia, Rosario Dawson, and Thomas Middleditch. The brother of Owen Wilson, Luke is popular for his roles in Wes Anderson’s earlier films, such as ‘Bottle Rocket,’ ‘Rushmore,’ and ‘The Royal Tenenbaums.’ Wilson will next be seen in John Crowley’s ‘The Goldfinch,’ as well as the upcoming DC Universe series ‘Stargirl.’
