'Zombieland TV' Series Finds Lead Roles and is Still Casting Various Roles

Casting directors are now casting for the upcoming TV series "Zombieland". Reports for the "ZombieLand" TV Series started from screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick back in Fall 2011, but since then the lack of updates has led everyone to believe that the show was scrapped. That changed earlier this week. CBS reported to have sent out casting calls for the pilot and iO9 has claimed to have read through the script pages that are being used for casting prupose (meaning they may or may not reflect what to expect in the actual pilot). But, Screen Rant recently reported what to expect in the Zombieland TV Series. "they offer an intriguing early look at how the Zombieland TV show may go above re-inventing the original movie’s characters, seeing how cast members Woody Harrelson (as Tallahassee), Jesse Eisenberg (Columbus), Emma Stone (Wichita) and Abigail Breslin (Little Rock) are pretty much guaranteed not to be reprising their roles."

Here are the characters based upon the TV Show pilot:
Tallahassee is still kind of a snarky weirdo, but he seems to have a much less spiky relationship with Columbus. He and Columbus have a pretty amusing thing where they riff on the fact that Steven Seagal movies always have three-word titles like “Marked for Justice” or “May Cause Diarrhea.” But Tallahassee also dispenses homespun wisdom about how to feel happy with your life. He also tells a weird story about being in a trailer park with a perpetually nude Matthew McConaughey. He also has a somewhat heartwarming scene where he tells Columbus that he’s been wandering aimlessly for a long time, but maybe he’s been put here for a reason — to help Columbus and the others. Columbus is much the same, except that he tracks down his grandma and grandpa (Bubbie and Peepaw) only to find them recently zombiefied. Also, Columbus is trying to deal with his newfound relationship with Wichita, after their first kiss. He has started calling her “Krista,” her real name — but there are some problems, especially after she finds him reading a book about fatherhood. He tries to organize a romantic scavenger hunt for her in the IKEA they’re camping out in, but it goes kind of horribly. Wichita is still trying to look after Little Rock, trying to teach her math with problems about someone stealing from a liquor store and jumping on a train going 42 miles per hour, with a cop chasing in a car going 88 miles per hour. We also learn a lot more about Wichita’s backstory, including how she ran away from her father after he had her stealing people’s Christmas presents — and later, she found out she had a sister who was also being a grifter with her dad. Little Rock seems actually kind of excited about meeting Columbus’ grandparents, before they turn out to be zombies. And she shares some of her own backstory, about how her dad parked her at a school while he went off grifting on his own — and then yanked her out of school right before a dance that she was looking forward to (ScreenRant). It is expected that new characters will be planned to join the cast, but the main concept behind the show ill follow the bonds and relationship between Tallahassee, Columbus, Wichita, and Little Rock. The original Zombieland has grossed 102 million dollars on a 24 million dollar budget. Recently, IGN announced that "Maiara Walsh (Desperate Housewives, Switched at Birth) has been cast as the female lead in Amazon Studios' Zombieland TV pilot, based on the popular feature film." The actress joins Tyler Ross (Milkshake) and Izabela Vidovic (Homefront), who will portray Columbus and Little Rock, respectively. All that remains now is Tallahassee, whose snakeskin leather boots were previously filled by Woody Harrelson. (IGN) Now Casting Directors are casting for various roles for the upcoming TV Series. Based upon a recent Facebook annoucement, Marinella Casting will be the company hiring extras, standins and most likely zombies for the new TV series "ZombieLand" .
