SAN DIEGO — If zombies rose up from their graves tomorrow, they'd want to eat our brains. Every second of our remaining lives would be a living nightmare, sneaking and hiding and running away from the undead. The world, as we know it, would become a living hell.
Or would it? That's the provocative, fun-loving central question behind
"I have a pretty cool pump shotgun [in the film] that I liked a lot," grinned "House Bunny" star
"The movie takes place in this post-apocalyptic world called Zombieland," explained "The Squid and the Whale" star
Forget about weapons — Eisenberg's list might actually be the most valuable asset in a zombie uprising. "Pre-Zombieland, [my character] has obsessive-compulsive disorder," the actor explained. "Post-Zombieland, he uses that to his advantage. ... The list is comically boring. Like, Ziploc bags, carry a suitcase with wheels on the bottom instead of a duffel bag so that you can run faster while being chased by a zombie. You want to limber up, to make sure you've stretched; do a lot of cardio. Always know your way out; don't be a hero."
"It is supposed to be a comedy," reasoned
"It's hilarious. I think it might be the funniest movie that has ever been made," director Ruben Fleischer deadpanned. "These are the survivors in a zombie-filled, barren landscape. And now they have to kill zombies, get Twinkies, meet some girls and travel across the country."
