Zombieland: Double Tap has added another star to its roster with Silicon Valley's Thomas Middleditch. The actor has joined the cast of the upcoming sequel, which already features the return of the original lineup, along with a few newcomers. Middleditch also played in a role in 2015's The Final Girls.
With the addition of Middleditch, the cast of the Zombieland sequel now includes original stars Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin, as well as fellow newcomers Zoey Deutch, Rosario Dawson, and Avan Jogia. It was also reported early last month that Dan Aykroyd and Bill Murray have joined the cast, both playing fictional versions of themselves.
Ruben Fleischer is returning to the director's chair while the first film's screenwriters, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, penned the new script as well. Production on Zombieland: Double Tap is currently underway and the film is scheduled to hit theaters on October 11th, 2019. Stay tuned for all of the latest updates on the sequel here on Dead Entertainment.
