Zombieland sequel in 3D
Zombieland the sequel, something that we heard about a while ago, looks like it might really happen, and the writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese have been banding around ideas for the film, some of which sound not so hot if you ask me.
The great thing about the Zombieland (Filmstalker review) was that it offered something new to a tired genre, something exciting and full of beans, but what they're talking about next doesn't sound so new. 3D.
Mind you there is one good thing, they are talking about writing it for 3D from the outset, and that means every scene will cater for the format, rather than setting up a few key scenes of something flying right at you. Mind you, it could also mean that they'll make every scene fly right at the audience.
So it's with slight trepadation that I read over at MTV through Collider that the writers were saying:
"We entirely want to write with 3-D in mind… We want you to be looking down at your popcorn to make sure there isn't blood on it. There will be a lot of fluids flying!"
Yeah, that means stuff flying at the screen all right, but then if they can bring new life to the zombie genre, could they bring new life to the 3D genre too?
There's also talk of giving Tallahassee a girl friend and exploring the idea of growing up in a world that has lost it's own innocence and forces you to grow up immediately, there is no enjoying youth.
It sounds like a good way to go, but the 3D aspect? Do we need another film in 3D? Do we need another Zombieland in 3D?
