Jesse Eisenberg Takes On Zombieland
Jesse Eisenberg may soon be traveling from Adventureland to Zombieland.
The actor is in final talks to join Woody Harrelson in Columbia Pictures horror comedy “Zombieland,” about a mismatched pair of survivors who find friendship and redemption in a world overrun by zombies.
Eisenberg is in negotiations to play Flagstaff, a terrified shut-in whose cowardice makes him an expert at surviving the zombies but who is forced out of his shell to join the band of survivors, which includes Harrelson.
He recently wrapped a lead in Miramax’s ’80s comedy “Adventureland,” in which he plays a recent college grad who takes a nowhere job at his local amusement park. [thr]
