Horror/comedy stars Harrelson, Eisenberg

Emma Stone is in final negotiations to star alongside Woody Harrelson and Jesse Eisenberg in the horror/comedy “Zombieland” for Columbia Pictures.

Ruben Fleischer will direct the pic, which centers on a band of survivors who team to fight the living dead in the post-apocalyptic Southwest after a zombie plague ravages America. Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese penned the screenplay.

Gavin Palone is producing the film, which begins shooting in Atlanta in February.

Project marks the third comedy in which Stone will star for the studio following “Superbad” and “The House Bunny.” She recently wrapped the independent feature “Paper Man” and can soon be seen alongside Matthew McConaughey and Jennifer Garner in the Warner Bros. romantic comedy “Ghosts of Girlfriends Past.”
