‘Zombieland: Double Tap’ Adds Thomas Middleditch to Cast
Thomas Middleditch is the newest addition to the long-anticipated sequel ‘Zombieland: Double Tap.’
The film is the next installment of the Sony Pictures post-apocalyptic zombie comedy. 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.’
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.”
Middleditch joins franchise newcomers Zoey Deutch, Avan Jogia, and Rosario Dawson. He is famous for his role on HBO’s ‘Silicon Valley,’ and will next be seen in the upcoming ‘Godzilla: King of the Monsters,’ releasing May 31.
And from our own Thomas Polito, Middleditch is set for the role that was originally going to be played by Justin Bieber:
