Rumours about a second film have been circulating for years, but now Sony has confirmed that Zombieland 2 will go into production at the beginning of 2019 and will be released in October of that year, a decade after the first movie.

The 2009 cult film is a mesh of horror and comedy, and follows four strangers who meet in a Zombie-ridden apocalyptic world.

Director Ruben Fleischer (Venom) and writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese (Deadpool) are also returning for the sequel.
