Writer/Producer RHETT REESE tweetered on Twitter last night to (I don’t use Twitter, so the syntax is foreign to me) regarding the cancellation of the ZOMBIELAND series by Amazon. How does a filmmaker take a bad situation and make it worse? Call out their fans:
I’ll never understand the vehement hate the pilot received from die-hard Zombieland fans. You guys successfully hated it out of existence.
It’s the fans fault? Certainly not the fault of the terrible casting decisions, sub-par script or awful special effects. It’s the fans. I consider myself a fan of ZOMBIELAND, so it’s my fault. Perhaps single handedly my fault. Rumor has it that several Amazon executives are avid fans of MWTVG, so perhaps my scathingly critical review constituted the event horizon of cancellation. Granted, rumor also has it that Elvis is alive, Bigfoot runs around the woods, aliens landed at Roswell and that some cosmic Jewish zombie grants immortality, so take that all for what you will.
No Rhett, fault for the ZOMBIELAND pilot’s failure rests squarely on the shoulders of your overinflated expectations. Let it go before you damage the chances of a ZOMBIELAND 2.
