Woody Harrelson's Zombie Slayer Movie Is More Whimsical Than We Realized

Quirky little flick Zombieland pits Woody Harrelson and his squad against a world of the undead. Check out this week's "zombie kill of the week." Sadly there's no Bill Murray glimpse, yet.

It feels a little Hitchhiker's Guide with the fanciful narrator — or Pushing Daisies — which I'm perfectly all right with. It really is about time Hollywood gave some money to decent writers to make a clever zombie movie that's more about the laughs. Anyone else think Woody just wore whatever he had lying around his house? Here's the official synopsis:

In the horror comedy Zombieland focuses on two men who have found a way to survive a world overrun by zombies. Columbus is a big wuss — but when you're afraid of being eaten by zombies, fear can keep you alive. Tallahassee is an AK-toting, zombie-slaying' bad ass whose single determination is to get the last Twinkie on earth. As they join forces with Wichita and Little Rock, who have also found unique ways to survive the zombie mayhem, they will have to determine which is worse: relying on each other or succumbing to the zombies.

Zombieland will be in theaters October 9th. Which means we'll probably have to wait to see Bill Murray's role, sigh.
