Emma Stone, Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg and Abigail Breslin have all signed up to reprise their roles in the sequel to their 2009 comedy-horror hit Zombieland.

Film studio Sony Pictures has announced that director Ruben Fleischer will once again be behind the lens, and that the writers of Zombieland, Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese, are also on board.

"This is one of those projects that fans have wanted to see happen for a long time - and no one wanted to see it happen more than Emma, Woody, Jesse and Abigail," said Sanford Panitch, President of Sony Pictures subsidiary Columbia Pictures. 

"These are some of the most in-demand actors, and I think they are making this movie because they love these characters. We are thrilled Ruben was willing to come back to direct the sequel, as his work on Venom has been truly amazing."

Zombieland followed the misadventures of four survivors - nicknamed Columbus (Eisenberg), Tallahassee (Harrelson), Wichita (Stone) and Little Rock (Breslin) - as they tried to stay one step ahead of the flesh-eating hordes.

US entertainment trade website Deadline says the sequel will give fans "comic mayhem that stretches from the White House and through the heartland" as the misfits face new zombies and "the growing pains of their own snarky, makeshift family".

The cameras are due to start rolling next January for an October 2019 release - the 10th anniversary of Zombieland's debut. 

Fleischer's new film, the Tom Hardy-starring Venom, is based upon the Marvel Comics character of the same name. It will be released on Friday October 5.
