In yesterday’s movie buzz, we could read that Zombieland 2 would feature a cameo of an iconic actor, someone like Harrison Ford or Anthony Hopkins. Personally I would have loved to see Jack Nicholson acting out his full register as zombie. That would have been something baffling to look forward to!
However, today Rhett Reese the co-writer of Zombieland 2, savagely shattered my dream. On his Twitter account the screenwriter told the world that the rumors, which was being tossed around the net yesterday, where nothing more than just false.
I assume that Reese tweet also would include the rumor that said that Zombieland 2 would feature a villain with comedic roots and that Tallahassee would be forced to go head-to-head with a hunky rival, as well.
Nevertheless, since Bill Murray’s cameo was one of the true highlights of Zombieland, it would really surprise me if something similar didn’t turned up the sequel.
Therefore, I suspect that Reese is just trying to put out a smokescreen and that Zombieland 2 will indeed feature a superstar cameo or at least something similar, after all.
However, since Zombieland 2 only is in the script stage so far, I guess that there will be more rumors and speculations, before we’ll be able to see the truth on the silver screen, within a year or two.
Anyway, here is a list from the top of my head, on which actor I would like to see do a cameo in Zombieland 2,
- George A. Romero
- Jack Nicholson
- Johnny Depp
- Gary Oldman
- Al Pacino
- Anthony Hopkins
- Steve Buscemi
- Quentin Tarantino
- Bill Nighy
What do you think, does Zombieland 2 need an iconic cameo appearance to become a hit and if so, who would you like to see?
