The Zombieland sequel has added some ådditional star power to its already impressive cast line-up. Actress Rosario Dawson has joined the cast of the upcoming highly-anticipated follow up to the 2009 fan-favorite film.
Dawson is arguably best known for her role as Mimi Marques in the film version of the Broadway musical Rent. She was most recently seen as Claire Temple on the Netflix/Marvel series Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Daredevil, The Defenders and Iron Fist.
The original cast including Emma Stone, Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, and Abigail Breslin are all onboard for the newly announced sequel. In addition to the original cast, the original film’s director Ruben Fleischer will also be dusting off his director chair for the sequel film. Original writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese have already written the script for the new film and Gavin Palone is also returning as producer. The Zombieland gang is all back together!
The original Zombieland film followed a ragtag group of survivors after the outbreak of the zombie apocalypse. Jesse Eisenberg played Columbus, a nerdy lone survivor. Harrelson played the slightly unhinged Tallahassee, and Stone and Breslin played sisters in the film named Wichita and Little Rock.
Zombieland 2 will, once again, follow these characters on their journey as they face newly evolved zombies and other human survivors all the while still learning how to live and deal with one another.
The film’s Twitter page recently shared a first look at the cast now, 10 years after the original film was released. Check it out:
