Zombieland looks to be a winner of a horror comedy, which is surprising since zombies are as tired as Lohan’s liver and most films shot in Georgia never amount to anything. But shot (partially) in Georgia it was and eventually you’ll see coverage of such from my set visit. Yeah, Devin gets to span the globe but I got to drive to Powder Springs!
For those who aren’t aware, Powder Springs was a fun place to hang in 1978.
AICN recently ran some exclusive stills from the movie, and they confirm a lot of the stuff we saw on set. The supermarket skirmish was the bulk of our day spent there, including the exact moment in the scene pictured here.
The concept of a zombie apocalypse is not new, but there’s a playful vibe and a very deft cast (Jesse Eisenberg and Woody Harrelson are an inspired pair) that is handled very well by director Ruben Fleischer, which should make the film a much more palatable choice than say… most everything not called Drag Me to Hell. Then again, a lot of you assholes didn’t pay to see that one did you? Repent! Repent!
Repent with this flick perhaps…
The trailer is now out and I’m surprised both how big it looks and how much of the comedy aspect they’re showing (though the writers and director aren’t gorehounds or anything, though Fleischer knows his shit and the writers were awesome guys). It looks really sharp and fun. Don’t believe me?
Check that trailer shit out here.
