2009's Zombieland is a pretty good movie with an excellent cast and perhaps the greatest celebrity cameo in movie history. Many folks thought there would be a sequel to the film, but as the years went by, we remained without a sequel. Now that the film's 10th anniversary is upon us, we're finally getting that sequel with Zombieland: Double Tap, subtitled for the rule that Jesse Eisenberg's character has in the first film in which all zombies require two bullets to be officially declared finished.

The cast interaction in the first film was definitely a highlight, with Woody Harrelson going delightfully full redneck as Tallahasee, Eisenberg at his nebbishy best as Columbus, and Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin delivering excellent support as Wichita and Little Rock. Now that their dynamics have been established, the only thing left to do is to bring other survivors into the picture.

Among the new additions to the cast are Lea Thompson's daughter Zoey Deutch as a blonde ditz, Now Apocalypse's Avan Jogia as a weed-smoking Berkley douchebag, and Luke Wilson & Thomas Middleditch playing a variation on Harrelson & Eisenberg's characters. It will no doubt be impossible for them to top the Bill Murray cameo in the first film, but I'm eager to see whom they select to fill those shoes.

Zombieland: Double Tap blasts its way into theaters on October 18, the same day as both Jojo Rabbit and Maleficent: Mistress of Evil.
