Fleischer wanted to maintain standard with 'Zombieland' sequel

Fleischer wanted to maintain standard with Zombieland sequel

Los Angeles: Ruben Fleischer, the director of zombie comedy Zombieland, has explained why it took him ten years to make a sequel, saying that he wanted to maintain a "really high standard" of storytelling.

The filmmaker is back with the much-awaited sequel Zombieland: Double Tap with the core cast of Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin reprising their fan-favourite characters.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Fleischer said he and film's writing team struggled to crack the "right story" for the sequel.

"The easy answer is, I think we all wanted to stretch our legs and try different things. I think we were all excited to do other stuff. But, the other thing is, we just couldn't figure out the right story to tell. It took a minute to get a story that we all felt was worthy, to come back to Zombieland for," the director said.

"We all have so much love for the original. So, we held ourselves to a really high standard as far as making sure that, if we were going to make a sequel, that it be at least as good, if not better, than original. And that ultimately all comes down to the script.
