The star of Silicon Valley is the latest to date in the casting of Zombieland Double Tap, the long-awaited sequel to the horror / comedy of 2009. Production began last month on the follow-up , which took a while to start. But the stars have finally aligned and this is actually happening. Although many elements of the suite remain a mystery, the cast is preparing quite well.
According to a new report, Thomas Middleditch would have embarked on Zombieland 2 in an unspecified role. He will join his newcomers Zoey Deutch ( Set It Up ) and Rosario Dawson ( Daredevil ), who had already been revealed among the newcomers of the film. Middleditch is best known for his work on the Silicon Valley of HBO which earned him an Emmy nomination in 2016. He is expected to appear in Godzilla: The King of Monsters later this year . Among his other credits include the overall comedy of last year Tag and the science fiction thriller Keanu Reeves Replicas . But this is one of his most prestigious film projects to date.
They will all be there and will take fire on Earth after an apocalypse of zombies raging for a decade with Tallahassee. (Woody Harrelson), Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg), Wichita (Emma Stone) and Little Rock (Abigail Breslin) are all back. The delay in the production of this film is largely due to the schedule of the main actors, who have all become major stars and sought after the release of the first game. But things finally settled and Sony intends to finish the film in time for its release on the tenth anniversary of the original.
