Mister Woody has signed on to star in the horror comedy, "Zombieland," to be directed by Ruden Fleischer.
The script? Written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick ("The Joe Schmo Show" -- see, reality shows have WRITERS!!!!).
According to the Hollywood Reporter, "Zombieland" revolves around:
a mismatched pair of survivors who find friendship and redemption in a world overrun by zombies. Harrelson plays one of the men, a zombie fighter named Albuquerque
Intriguing, interesting, and if it's a horror comedy, I'm sure Mister Woody can pull it off!

Director Mathieu Kassovitz is VERY unhappy with the final cut of his flick, "Babylon A.D."
He's blaming Twentieth Century Fox!
Kassovitz is pretty much blaming everyone but himself, on why the film turned out crappy!
The film is set to open this Friday, and to this day, I still haven't heard an invite from Fox about a critics screening.
UH-OH!!! NOT A GOOD SIGN!!!
Click here to find out why Kassovitz is really, really ticked off!
