Last week, we reported on a rumor that the Zombieland TV series project was moving forward. The original TV series talk began in 2011, but new casting call sheets suggested that the series could go into production shortly. Nothing has been officially announced by any of the companies involved, but Zombieland producer Gavin Polone just mentioned that the series is being developed by

In a recent interview with Broadcast Now (via io9), Polone said that Amazon is developing the series as 30-minute episodes that would appear on Amazon Instant Video as original programming. Netflix is making serious investments in original content development as a way to stay ahead of the pack, and it sounds like Amazon wants to follow in their footsteps.

Unfortunately, there isn't much in the way of details at the moment and we'll consider this a rumor until Amazon makes an official announcement. Here are some character details from our previous report that give you an idea of what we could see from the TV versions of the main Zombieland characters:

Tallahassee is still kind of a snarky weirdo, but he seems to have a much less spiky relationship with Columbus. He and Columbus have a pretty amusing thing where they riff on the fact that Steven Seagal movies always have three-word titles like “Marked for Justice” or “May Cause Diarrhea.” But Tallahassee also dispenses homespun wisdom about how to feel happy with your life. He also tells a weird story about being in a trailer park with a perpetually nude Matthew McConaughey. He also has a somewhat heartwarming scene where he tells Columbus that he’s been wandering aimlessly for a long time, but maybe he’s been put here for a reason — to help Columbus and the others.

Columbus is much the same, except that he tracks down his grandma and grandpa (Bubbie and Peepaw) only to find them recently zombiefied. Also, Columbus is trying to deal with his newfound relationship with Wichita, after their first kiss. He has started calling her “Krista,” her real name — but there are some problems, especially after she finds him reading a book about fatherhood. He tries to organize a romantic scavenger hunt for her in the IKEA they’re camping out in, but it goes kind of horribly.

Wichita is still trying to look after Little Rock, trying to teach her math with problems about someone stealing from a liquor store and jumping on a train going 42 miles per hour, with a cop chasing in a car going 88 miles per hour. We also learn a lot more about Wichita’s backstory, including how she ran away from her father after he had her stealing people’s Christmas presents — and later, she found out she had a sister who was also being a grifter with her dad.

Little Rock seems actually kind of excited about meeting Columbus’ grandparents, before they turn out to be zombies. And she shares some of her own backstory, about how her dad parked her at a school while he went off grifting on his own — and then yanked her out of school right before a dance that she was looking forward to.”
