Fans of Ruben Fleischer's gore fest look set to be disappointed.

Ruben Fleischer, the director of 'Zombieland', the hit horror movie that starred Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson and Emma Stone, revealed in an interview with 'Collider' that plans to direct a sequel have been shelved indefinitely.


Speaking to the movie blog, the director of 'Gangster Squad' and '30 Minutes Or Less' revealed that initial script meetings had foundered, and that he'd decided to abandon the project:

“I hate to do it, but I can say that there’s no immediate plans to make the movie. There’s no script, really, so the likelihood of it happening is slim... It’s not that the studio is not excited, it’s that we took one shot at the script [and] it wasn’t something we all got excited to do. And just on a personal level, I was really excited to, having made one movie, to make different movies, not just go back into that world again. 

However Fleischer hasn't ruled out a return of the Zombie killers entirely:

“But now that I have some distance and I’ve done some other stuff, I would be more inclined to go back to 'Zombieland' I guess you could say.  But at the time when the talk of the sequel was really - when it felt like it was possible - I was really kind of shying away from it.”

Gangster Squad opened in the UK this weekend.
