If there are two things in this world that I know Woody Harrelson enjoys, it’s killing zombies and eating Twinkies. If it’s evidence you want, you need to look no further than 2009’s Zombieland and its sequel, Zombieland: Double Tap. Harrelson starred as the proficient zombie killer Tallahassee in both films alongside Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, and Abigail Breslin, and according to the man himself, he’s up for more.
Harrelson said as much while speaking with Comicbook.com about the new film Venom: There Will Be Carnage. While talking about his role as Cletus Kasady for the Andy Serkis-directed superhero film, Harrelson mentioned that he’d like to return to the Zombieland franchise at some point.
“Well, I would love that, because that whole group there is about as fun as it gets,” Harrelson told Comicbook.com, during an exclusive interview. “I love working with those guys. I can’t even tell you how much, a lot. So, yeah. From your lips to God’s ears, I hope that happens.”
While Harrelson is ready and willing to brave another zombie apocalypse for a third Zombieland movie, no plans for a sequel exist at this time. That said, it was fan excitement that got the film’s director Ruben Fleischer to helm a sequel. Maybe if we make enough noise online the stars will align for another cross-country tale of survival and shambling celebrity corpses.
Be sure to catch Harrelson when he stars alongside Tom Hardy in Venom: Let There Be Carnage, which swings into theaters on October 1, 2021.
