According to the site Broadcastnow.co.uk, Amazon is “developing a remake of horror comedy Zombieland, marking its most high profile series since it announced plans to move into original programming.”
Word of a TV version of “Zombieland” has been around for a while now, as far back as October of 2011, so the existence of such a show is no surprise. But it’s curious that it’s being developed on Amazon.com. Where exactly would the show air? Online?
Let’s face it, as “high-tech” and online-centric as the world has become these days, being an “online show” still doesn’t quite have the same ring of prestige as being on an honest to goodness TV dial.
In any case, that’s the current news for all you “Zombieland” fans out there. That “Zombieland” sequel may or may not be coming to a theater near you soon (depending on who you ask), but pretty soon you might have yourself a “Zombieland” TV show.
Of course, it’s highly doubtful Emma Stone, Woody Harrelson, and Jesse Eisenberg will be reprising their roles from the movie, so chances are you’re looking at new stories set in the post-apocalypse with all-new characters. Or at least, that would be the way smarter way to go instead of recasting…
