Amazon Instant has created a series based on the “Zombieland” movie, but instead of getting Jesse Eisenberg and Woody Harrelson… they got other people to take over their roles. Why wouldn’t they just base the show on different characters in the same world? I think the move to recast the same characters is going to kill any chances this series had. The only glimmer of hope is that the writers of the movie are writers on the series, but I don’t think that’s gonna be enough to save it.
Either way though, here’s the trailer so you can check it out for yourself. The pilot episode is also up on Amazon Instant right now. I’m going to check it out in a few minutes and probably just post my thoughts on Twitter (@acslaterx) so follow us for updates.
