So, Zombieland. The Amazon series, I mean (yes, Amazon is following in Netflix's footsteps and getting into the original series game), not the amazing movie upon which it was based. How do you feel about this? My feelings on this have done a roller coaster ever since it was announced there would be a serial version adapted from the movie I loved so much. At first, I was all, "AWESOME!" which changed rather quickly to, "More zombies? Do we really need more...?" But after seeing the poster and first few image for the series, my feelings are more, "Enh..."
This is what I mean:
The nondescript dude in the front of the first picture is Tallahassee. Now, I'm sure that is a fine actor and all, but how do you go from a man with a bad-ass hat (which you can buy here, incidentally) who was never not holding a gun or something to bludgeon a zombie to death with, to a guy who looks like your Uncle Larry who you see every Sunday when he comes to watch the Packers play and drink some beer with your old man? The second picture, it is what it is.
Here, have a synopsis:
Zombieland is based on the hit Columbia Pictures movie of the same name, and finds four survivors outwitting zombies and searching for a place to call home. The Zombieland pilot comes from the feature film’s original creative team, writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (G.I. Joe: Retaliation, The Joe Schmo Show), and producer Gavin Polone (Gilmore Girls, Curb Your Enthusiasm). Eli Craig (Tucker and Dale vs. Evil) is directing the pilot.
The promising thing is that the original crew from the movie is involved, so that's a good sign, as well as Craig helming the pilot, mainly because Tucker and Dale vs. Evil is great and if you've not seen it, you need to. Along with Ward as Tallahassee, will be taking on the role of Wichita, is Columbus, and is playing Little Rock.
