Zombieland TV series headed for Amazon.com

That's right peeps, we might not be getting a sequel to the rather brilliant Zombieland, we're going to get a TV series instead. But it won't be a network series, oh no. This mother is going the On Demand route.

Seems Amazon.com is trying to compete with Eli Roth's Netflix original series Hemlock Grove by jump starting the Zombieland project. No word yet on who's in it or when we'll see it, but each 30-minute episode will follow the adventures of a group of survivors who band together during the zombie apocalypse.

Unless you've been living under a rock, the Zombieland movie starred Woody Harrelson, Jessie Eisenberg, Abigail Breslin and the lovely Emma Stone, all of whom are pictured above.

The verdict is still out on whether Netflix or Amazon can sustain a series like this, but I say go for it. VOD is the wave of the future, and I'd love to see these sites produce good, original content until the cows come home.
