By now it’s no secret that Zombieland is headed for the small screen all thanks to Amazon Studios. While we still wait for more official news on what Amazon’s plan is for the series, some casting news has started roll in according to Deadline. Tackling the role of Columbus — originally played by Jesse Eisenberg in the film — will be Tyler Ross, star of the indie film Milkshake. And Up-and-comer Izabela Vidovic will be filling the role of Little Rock, originally played by Abigail Breslin.
No word just yet on who will play Tallahassee and Wichita but with this latest news I would expect an announcement shortly. Zombies are all the rage these days, so it’s no surprise that Amazon wants to capitalize on the living dead. The series has a ton of potential as they plan to have each episode 30 minutes a piece which should keep things rolling at an entertaining and hopefully gory pace.
Below you can see the first two pieces of the puzzle, Ross and Vidovic.
