First Look: Eisenberg, Harrelson, and Breslin in Zombieland!
The first few photos from Ruben Fleischer's Zombieland have finally made their online debut courtesy of Ain't It Cool News. This is the upcoming zombie comedy that stars Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, Amber Heard, and Abigail Breslin. It's about, well, just finding a way to survive a world overrun by zombies. I expect we'll see a trailer either tomorrow or sometime next week, so stay tuned for that. A few months ago, we sent Kevin Powers out to the set of Zombieland in Georgia. He has a forthcoming report on his whole experience that will probably be up in early July. In the meantime, check these out.
Columbus (Eisenberg) has made a habit of running from what scares him. Tallahassee (Harrelson) doesn't have fears. If he did, he'd kick their ever-living ass. In a world overrun by zombies, these two are perfectly evolved survivors. But now, they're about to stare down the most terrifying prospect of all: each other.
Zombieland is directed by first-time filmmaker Ruben Fleischer of only a few episodes of "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" previously. The screenplay was written by newcomers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese best known for "The Joe Schmo Show" previously. Sony will be bringing Zombieland to theaters on October 9th this fall.

Although Zack Snyder's (DotD) looked more like it, can anyone say Left 4 Dead movie? 😛

I guess that Eisenberg guy gets every role that Michael Cera turns down.

Looks awesome 🙂 Great cast, Harrelson seems to be getting with age, Eisenberg was great in Adventureland and Stone/Heard are pure eye-candy. Really looking forward to this!

You're allowed to have two Michael Cera types. And i think Eisenberg's a little less awkward than Cera. I like em both.

I was just looking back at the last picture and the lumpiness of that zombie's bulbous stomach makes we wonder if it's about to get baseball bat'd and splatter all over.

Nice. I really hope this is a GOOD zombie movie, haven't seen one for quite some time. I think the DotD remake was the last one... well, unless you count Shaun of the Dead, that too was excellent. However everything since then (Land of the Dead, Diary of the Dead, Quarantine, etc) has sucked.

Um, why the hell is there a donut on the bat in the last picture?

The same reason there is cheerios on the shelf and milk on the floor......Because!

Zombies are so last decade.

@13 I don't think that's a doughnut. I'm pretty sure it's a weight. Baseball players put them on bats to simulate a heavier bat during practice so that when they are at bat during a game, the bat feels easier to swing.

Harrelson's involvement in this project is simply wicked.

i hope it's on par with "shaun of the dead". that was a FUNNY movie!!!

I really didn't care much for Shaun of the Dead, (It was more like Yawn of the Dead in my opinion), But I really liked Land of the Dead. Wish I could say the same for Diary of the Dead, but unfortunately I can't.

You enjoyed Land of the Dead but disliked Shaun of the Dead? Wow, such awful taste..
Berry on Jun 14, 2009
# 20... Whatever. To each his own. Shaun practically put me to sleep, Land entertained me. That's just the way it is.
Dan Walimaa on Jun 15, 2009
tex, it's a training weight...put it on the bat n swing it around before going up to the plate so the bat feels lighter in your hands...duh... for zombie killing it gives the bat more weight n momentum for the coup de grace on zeds head... as demonstrated by tallahassee... personally i woulda gone with the longer ones that fit about half way up...balance out the weight a lil more...
