Will Amazon Bring This Internet ZOMBIELAND: THE SERIES??
Amazon is negotiations with Sony for a “Zombieland” TV-type series based on the studio’s popular 2009 big-screen zomromcom.
If it goes forward, it would be the first scripted series ever to go exclusive to the online retailer’s streaming service.
Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who scripted the movie, intend to return as writer-producers if the series manifests. I’m not sure how excited I am about that. If one strips away the Bill Murray stuff, a troubling percentage of the comedy in the movie was a little inexpert, if you’re asking me. Also, Reese and Wernick scripted the long-delayed upcoming “G.I. Joe” sequel; some who saw the version that screened for exhibitors last summer assure me it’s quite miserable.
“Zombieland” actually finds its origins in a proposed TV series Reese and Wernick developed for CBS way back in 2005, but it never got to the pilot stage. After the Sci-Fi Channel passed, the writers then turned it into a movie script.
