Jesse Eisenberg is Headed for Zombieland


Joining Woody Harrelson in the horror comedy

Jesse Eisenberg is in final talks to join Woody Harrelson in Columbia Pictures’ horror comedy Zombieland, about a mismatched pair of survivors who find friendship and redemption in a world overrun by zombies.

The Hollywood Reporter says Eisenberg is in negotiations to play Flagstaff, a terrified shut-in whose cowardice makes him an expert at surviving the zombies but who is forced out of his shell to join the band of survivors, which includes Harrelson.

Ruben Fleischer is directing Zombieland off a script by the writing team Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.
