Zombieland sitcom gets fleshed out

Because a post-apocalyptic world filled with the brain-munching rotting corpses of our dead loved ones = megaLOLs!

Since the unprecedented success of Zombieland a couple of years ago, there has been a lot of sequel talk. This presumably got harder to achieve as original stars Jesse Eisenberg and Emma Stone became Ones To Watch™.

And then something else happened in the meantime: The Walking Dead made zombie killing cool again. Soon enough, kids who weren't even born when This Life first aired started re-enacting their favourite 'bashing an undead's skull in with a rock' scene from each episode in playgrounds across America. At least, that's how I imagine it.

So now the much-mooted Zombieland sequel is being reworked as a sitcom for telly. Of course. All of which, makes sense and the show will probably actually be really funny as long as they keep to the same tone of the movie.

But the word 'sitcom' just makes me think of wooden sets, canned laughter and Seinfeld-style slap-bass interim music. In fact, I'd probably watch that as well. So basically, all we've learned is that I'll watch anything zombie-related.

Here's Zombie Cat.
