Trivia: Zombieland
  • Actor Allusion: Woody Harrelson managed to survive this apocalypse intact. In his previous film, however, there is the matter of that annoying supervolcano underneath Yellowstone National Park...
  • Copycat Cover:
    • The direct-to-video Vampire Killers uses the exact same font on its cover, and has its characters in almost the exact same poses.
    • Ditto for the DVD cover of Defendor, also starring Harrelson.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Brennan/Mark Zuckerberg teams up with Carson Wells and gets conned by Olive and, uh, Olive.
  • Throw It In: The conversation between Little Rock and Tallahassee about Hannah Montana was a Throw It In by Abigail Breslin.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • Mid Development Medium Shift: Zombieland was originally imagined as a TV series. However, when all the networks the creators went to shot it down, eventually the duo settled on making a movie out of it. The above-mentioned "Zombie Kill of the Week" is pretty clearly a holdover from the TV idea. Ironically, now that the movie has proven a hit, the creators are considering making a TV spinoff.
    • The Cameo of Bill Murray As Himself, was originally going to be Patrick Swayze As Himself, and the characters would've referenced Dirty Dancing and Ghost. Alas...
      • Mark Hamill was also considered.
    • In the DVD extras, it's revealed that Abigail Breslin liked the zombie makeup so much that she asked the producers if Little Rock could become a zombie at the end. They turned her down.
