Eisenberg earned an Oscar nomination a couple years after his role in Zombieland when he landed the part of Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network. That propelled him pretty quickly into the spotlight, although it didn't stop him from continuing to sign on to smaller films like 30 Minutes or Less, American Ultra, and Café Society. He's also been a part of huge franchises, like Now You See Me with Harrelson and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. However, Eisenberg's future ambitions seem to lie more behind the camera, with the actor set to produce, write, or direct a number of upcoming TV projects, in addition to publishing his first book, a collection of short stories called Bream Gives Me Hiccups. Eisenberg is working on a TV adaptation of his book, along with a planned single-camera TV comedy with J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot Productions.
Still, despite his writing ambitions, Eisenberg has said he'd love to return for a sequel, explaining that it would be "wonderful" to return to the story. "It takes place in this odd, created world and features an ensemble of interesting characters that it'd be curious to see more of," he said. "I would hope that it happens, and I'm sure everybody would be happy to do it if it happens and it's good."
Eisenberg then went on to say that, "It's also a strangely beloved movie, so it's a thing you have to get right. Some sequels you don't have to get exactly right, but this is the kind of movie you have to get right because people like it for personal reasons, even though it's a zombie comedy." Of course, while he has a lot of enthusiasm for the film, the more projects Eisenberg gets involved in, the less time he'll have to return to the world of Zombieland.
