Zombieland 2: Double Tap Release Date Moved Back One Week to October 18th

Since Zombieland introduced the double tap survival rule in 2009, many fans have been hungry for a sequel, and last summer it was revealed that a follow-up to Zombieland would indeed be moving forward with the original cast returning. Originally slated for a theatrical release on October 11th, Sony has now moved Zombieland 2: Double Tap back one week to October 18th.

The slight release date change was reported by Exhibitor Relations. With an October 18th release date, Zombieland 2: Double Tap will still come out a little over 10 years after the release of the first film.

In the sequel, Emma Stone (Wichita), Woody Harrelson (Tallahassee), Jesse Eisenberg (Columbus) and Abigail Breslin (Little Rock) are all reprising their roles as the motley crew of zombie apocalypse survivors from the first movie.

In addition to reuniting the cast in front of the camera, key creative forces are also coming back behind the camera as well,

Kevin Feige Doesn’t Want To Change Anything About The Deadpool Movies

As of last month, the Deadpool franchise is officially a Disney property, giving the Mouse House the legal go-ahead to bring Wade Wilson into the McU. But while the Merc with a Mouth’s solo outings have so far been a fair bit bloodier and more profanity-laden than your average Marvel Studios flick, producer Kevin Feige seemingly has no intention of changing what works about the series.

In an interview with Variety, the Marvel Studios head observed that the Deapool franchise is doing pretty well for itself these days, arguing that he doesn’t need to fix what isn’t broken.

“When we were purchased, Bob said to us, ‘if it’s not broke, don’t fix it,’” Feige said. “There’s no question that Deadpool is working, so why would we change it?”

The “Bob” that Feige is referring to is Disney CEO Bob Iger, who also offered his

Disney Exec Promises We’ll Be Seeing More Deadpool

We haven’t seen the last of Ryan Reynolds as the Merc With a Mouth.

Not that the actor’s role was ever really in doubt, but in light of the historic Disney-Fox merger, a number of potentially alarming Deadpool questions have been raised. For instance, will the Mouse House dilute Wade Wilson to create a PG-13 version of the iconic Marvel anti-hero? Not quite.

As a matter of fact, Disney boss Bob Iger recently hinted at the possibility of an R-rated Marvel Studios movie, with Deadpool seemingly being priority number one. When, exactly, we’ll see the first Disney-backed Deadpool film is another question entirely, but while in attendance at the 2019 CinemaCon event in Las Vegas, executive Alan Horn assured fans that we haven’t seen the last of Ryan Reynolds in red spandex. Far from it, in fact.

“You’ll be seeing more of Deadpool in the years ahead.

Epic X-Men Art Welcomes The Mutants Home To Marvel Studios

As of 12:02 a.m. Et today, the X-Men are officially under the ownership of Disney, giving Marvel Studios the legal go-ahead to integrate the comic book characters into the McU.

In recognition of this moment, a fan-made poster has emerged that teases the arrival of a certain adamantium-clawed hero, while sporting the tagline, “Mutants Are Coming Home.” No doubt Marvel Studios already has some ideas for how to bring their newly acquired Fox characters into their cinematic universe, though given how busy their schedule is these days, it could still be a few more years before Wolverine and his friends return to the big screen.

Disney Adds Deadpool To Their Website Banner As Fox Deal Closes

We’ve already seen Deadpool’s reaction to the Disney/Fox merger, and now that the deal is officially in effect, it seems that the Mouse House is happy to have the Merc on board.

At 12:02 a.m. Et today, Disney officially acquired an overwhelming array of Fox properties, and on the company’s website, these new arrivals are acknowledged by an updated banner. As you can see, not only is Deadpool pictured in the line-up, but also the Na’vi from Avatar and Bart Simpson, the latter of whom may regret calling Mickey Mouse “the mascot of an evil corporation” in The Simpsons Movie.

Of course, Disney’s list of new acquisitions extends far, far beyond these three properties, and includes the likes of Alien, Predator, Planet of the Apes, Family Guy, The X-Files, American Horror Story, Ice Age, Bob’s Burgers, Home Alone and we could keep going,

Ryan Reynolds Reacts To Disney/Fox Deal With Hilarious Deadpool Photo

As of 12:02 a.m. Et tonight, the historic Disney/Fox merger will officially come into effect. And among the many ways that the deal will send tremors across the entertainment industry, this means that the Mouse House will soon be acquiring a hefty new batch of Marvel characters, one of the biggest being a certain Merc with a Mouth.

In recognition of this moment, Ryan Reynolds has take to Twitter with a picture of Deadpool wearing Mickey Mouse ears while riding a school bus labeled “Disney.” In the caption, the star explains his thoughts as follows:

“Feels like the first day of ‘Pool.”

What happens next for Deadpool and his X-Men friends remains to be seen, but recasting Wade Wilson while his series is still hot seems like outright self-sabotage, so we can probably assume that Reynolds will survive the transition.

Woody Harrelson is “really impressed” with Zombieland: Double Tap and so is Jesse Eisenberg

Woody Harrelson has revealed that he is “really impressed” with Zombieland: Double Tap and his co-star Jesse Eisenberg has also revealed how well shooting is going.

When a sequel arrives so long after the original, such as in the case of Zombieland and it’s follow-up, Zombieland: Doupletap, one could start to doubt whether the new film will be able to recapture what was so special in the first place.

Fortunately, this doesn’t seem to be the case with this particular franchise, at least not according to two of its returning stars. Woody Harrelson, in a recent interview with EW, expressed how amazed he is by the film so far:

“What we’ve shot so far, I’m really impressed with. Getting to hang out with these guys — Emma, and Abbie, and Jesse, and Ruben — I feel so lucky, really, really lucky. You know, it’s literally laughing all day long,

Zombieland 2 Shoot Has Woody Harrelson Laughing All Day Long

Zombieland 2 Shoot Has Woody Harrelson Laughing All Day Long
&#8232&#8232It's been a long tome coming, but Zombieland Double Tap is finally happening. For real. Zombieland was released 10 years ago. Can you believe it? Seems like just yesterday when we were introduced to the intriguing, and quite funny characters that inhabited the first filmscape.

The movie was very, very well received. It even got 90% on the Tomato meter, and that's no easy feat! A lot has happened in the real world since Zombieland was released last decade, however Zombies will never change. This is why even though it's been a long time, I think people will be excited to see yet another movie featuring the ever present pop culture monsters that we all seem to love so much.

This time around we once again get to see the loveable cast of Zombieland in a "sequel" called Zombieland: Double Tap. One of the stars of the movie, Woody Harrelson was making

Original Pirates of the Caribbean Writer Returns for Reboot?

It may be the pirate's life once again for Terry Rossio. Disney is currently looking to freshen up the long-running and highly profitable Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. This has proved to be a cash cow for the studio dating back to 2003 when the first installment was released. However, Johnny Depp isn't the star he once was and they're hoping to take the franchise in a new direction, not centered on Jack Sparrow. Now, it looks like Rossio may be the guy to make that happen.

According to a new report, Terry Rossio is in talks to pen the screenplay for the Pirates of the Caribbean reboot. This comes not long after the writing duo of Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, best known for their work on the very successful Deadpool movies, departed the project. It was initially revealed in October 2018 that the hot-ticket screenwriting duo had been tapped by

Woody Harrelson Says He’s Really Impressed With Zombieland: Double Tap

Zombieland: Double Tap will be arriving in cinemas more than a decade after the first movie, and after such a long period of absence from our screens, you have to wonder if the horror-comedy series can still maintain its spark of energy and inspiration. But for what it’s worth, actor Woody Harrelson sure sounds like he’s having a fun time revisiting the post-apocalyptic world of the 2009 film.

Harrelson recently attended SXSW, where his new Netflix drama The Highwaymen had its premiere. While there, he spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the upcoming sequel and the many laughs he’s had on set.

“What we’ve shot so far, I’m really impressed with,” Harrelson said. “Getting to hang out with these guys — Emma, and Abbie, and Jesse, and Ruben — I feel so lucky, really, really lucky. You know, it’s literally laughing all day long, and that’s your job.

Original Pirates Of The Caribbean Writer In Talks To Pen The Reboot

For a second there, it looked like the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise was finally set to go into retirement, but according to a new report from Discussing Film, Disney is currently in talks with another writer to pen the planned reboot.

Back in October, the news broke that Deadpool scribes Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick had been brought on board to create a fresh start for the swashbuckling series. Following their departure from the project last month, however, there was talk that Disney might give up on the idea altogether and let the franchise end with 2017’s Dead Men Tell No Tales. Now it seems that those predictions of the property’s death may have been premature, since Terry Rossio is apparently being eyed to pick up where Reese and Wernick left off.

Rossio’s writing credits can be found on many a Hollywood adventure film from the recent decades,

Jesse Eisenberg Gives Us An Update On Zombieland: Double Tap

After much demand from the fans and a few false starts, Zombieland: Double Tap is now in production and from what we understand, it’s coming together rather nicely. Granted, we haven’t really seen much from it in the way of official stills or footage just yet, but we we do have a few details on the story of Ruben Fleischer’s next film.

According to recent reports, the pic will find the old gang living in the White House before they set out on a journey that’ll introduce a few new zombie types to the franchise which have managed to evolve over the years. Along the way, they’ll also encounter a “female zombie-hunting badass named Nevada,” played by Rosario Dawson, while Jesse Eisenberg’s Columbus will find himself with a new love interest named Madison, played by Zoey Deutch.

After years and years of waiting, Zombieland 2, titled Zombieland: Double Tap, is finally in the works. While the studio, for the time being, is keeping a pretty tight lid on things, I recently had the chance to chat with Jesse Eisenberg, who returns as Columbus in the upcoming sequel. Eisenberg was kind enough to provide us with a little bit, in broad terms, of what we can expect from the movie when it arrives later this year.

Jesse Eisenberg was at SXSW in Austin, Texas to promote his new movie The Art of Self Defense, along with the rest of the cast and director Riley Stearns. We'll have the full interview coming down the pipeline at a later date.

Deadpool Will Definitely Appear In McU Films After Disney/Fox Deal

Though the main ­X-Men series has lost some of its momentum with fans and filmgoers in recent years, Ryan Reynolds is currently on a hot streak with the Deadpool movies that Disney looks set to continue once the Fox merger comes into effect. And while Wade Wilson’s current cinematic universe seems to be entering its closing chapters with Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants, it seems that the Merc with a Mouth will find a new home as part of the McU.

According to sources close to Wgtc, Marvel Studios will “110%” be putting Deadpool into various Marvel Cinematic Universe releases. This will reportedly include PG-13 films, though Wade’s own solo movies will continue to be R-rated.

Continuity-wise, it’s unclear how Disney intends to pull this off, seeing how the Deadpool series is already well established to be part of a separate reality. Still, if there’s any

Marvel Studios Plans To Keep Giving Deadpool R-Rated Solo Movies

Though Charles Xavier and his merry band of mutants still have at least one more adventure to look forward to thanks to Dark Phoenix, folks are already starting to find themselves getting excited for the fresh start for the X-Men saga that the Disney/Fox merger will bring about. X-Force, on the other hand, is still up in the air, while the Deadpool series is expected to continue on in some shape or form under the Mouse House.

In fact, Disney has said on a few occasions now that they have no intention of watering down the Merc with a Mouth. After all, Wade Wilson was recently given the PG-13 treatment with Once Upon a Deadpool, and the frosty reception to the Deadpool 2 re-release showed everyone that it’s not in the studio’s best interest to turn Dp into a family-friendly hero. Thankfully, then, they certainly aren’t planning on doing so.

Deadpool Creator Shares Artwork Of Josh Brolin As Old Man Cable

Last month, Deadpool co-creator Rob Liefeld announced plans for Major X, a six-issue limited series that hits stores this April. Among the details teased for the upcoming project is the inclusion of an older version of Cable, with Liefeld recently unveiling a new design for Nathan Summers that includes a long beard and a top knot.

Since it just so happens that Josh Brolin played the character in last year’s Deadpool 2, perhaps it was only a matter of time before someone on the internet imagined the actor adopting the same striking look, and when artist Houseofmat did just that, Liefeld was impressed enough with the result to repost it on his Instagram.

Putting Houseofmat’s image and his own side-by-side, Liefeld praised his fellow artist for his quickness:

“Mere hours after sharing a glimpse of ‘Old(est) Man Cable from my upcoming Major X on social media, this augmented version of Josh appeared.
