1st look at the undead-killing cast of new Zombieland web series

The awesome horror comedy Zombieland is coming back to life, and now we have out first look at the new cast as they continue to search for Twinkies and kill the undead.

The hit 2009 movie was originally conceived as a TV show, but after the networks passed, the writers reworked it for a feature film. After the movie rocked the box office, studios were once again interested in making a small-screen version, and now we finally have our first look at Amazon's online Zombieland series.

It’s amazing when things come full circle.

Since most of the original cast have gone off to become bona fide movie stars (Emma Stone, Jesse Eisenberg, etc.), the Amazon pilot has recast all the main roles for the small screen. The pic above shows the new cast in action, including: Wichita (Maiara Walsh), Columbus (Tyler Ross), Little Rock (Izabela Vidovic) and Tallahassee (Kirk Ward).

Creator Paul Wernick seems pretty excited to bring the franchise to its original medium, and said he believes the sitcom-style format should be a good fit:

“Zombieland will strive to break the rules—action, adventure, thrills, chills and laughs and all packed into a half hour format. This is not your average show but Amazon is not your average network.”

In a pretty cool twist, Amazon has opted to post the pilot (and 12 others) online to allow viewers to vote on which projects they want to see receive a series order. The company says “customer feedback” will determine which shows move forward.

So, once the pilot goes live, be sure and let Amazon know what you think.
