In October of 2009 Zombieland is coming out.
You would think that with “Zombie” in the title, there would be no question as to whether Ruben Fleischer’s foray into the genre was, in fact, a Zombie movie; however, according to the casting director, the “zombies” of Zombieland will be,
“[F]erocious, infected people that move erratically. They are diseased, as opposed to undead. These are not the lumbering walking dead of Romero’s zombie movies, but instead the super jacked up 28 Days Later / Dawn of the Dead (2004) zombies. They are scary and gnarly and gross.”
Worst of all, if you watch the trailer you’ll see that these Zombies run.
As you might imagine, I’m conflicted. That’s not to say I am not going to watch it, I will be watching it, several times in fact, and there is a good chance I will buy the Special Edition box set with the wall poster but this is all purely for research purposes and I will not be enjoying any of it.
No way, no how.
