The leading cast of Amazon’s upcoming “Zombieland” series appears to be fully locked. Deadline reports that Kirk Ward has signed on to play Tallahassee opposite Tyler Ross’s Columbus, Izabela Vidovic’s Little Rock and Maiara Walsh’s Wichita.
The original film, directed by Ruben Fleischer and written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, starred Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin as a group of survivors trying to stay alive in the face of the zombie apocalypse. Ward’s role is the one played by Harrelson in the original film.
Planned for 30-minute episodes, the “television” version of “Zombieland” returns the franchise to its original concept of an ongoing serialized comedy adventure.
