Zombieland 2: Double Tap introduces a new character named Madison, and the film’s director has now stated that he’s interested in making a spinoff focused on her.
Ruben Fleischer told The Hollywood Reporter that he “would love” to make a spinoff that tells the story of what happens to Madison after the events of Double Tap.
SPOILERS FOR ZOMBIELAND 2 BELOW
At the end of Zombieland 2, Madison and another new character, Berkeley, stay behind at the peace haven of Babylon. It’s unclear what happens to both of them after the events of the movie, and it sounds like a spinoff–if it’s ever made–could deliver those answers.
“I would love to do a Madison standalone movie,” Fleischer said. “So, I think that story remains to be written. That would be a fun thing to go find out. That actually would’ve been a good post-credit scene where those two are in Babylon just being pretty dumb together.”
Madison is played by Zoey Deutch. To be clear, no Zombieland sequels or spinoffs have been announced. Zombieland 2 has made $37 million worldwide against its $42 million budget (before marketing) so those numbers don’t paint the rosiest of pictures about future instalments. The first Zombieland movie was released in 2009 and made $100 million.
Zombieland 2 was written by Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. For more, check out our Zombieland 2 review and also our explanation of how much time has passed in between movies.
