It's taken some 10 years to get a "Zombieland" sequel off the ground, but it sounds like it'll be worth the wait.

"Zombieland 2" is still in production, but star Woody Harrelson already has glowing things to say about the horror comedy. He recently chatted with EW about the film, which he's working on with fellow original cast members Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, and Abigail Breslin as well as director Ruben Fleischer. The actor said he's "literally laughing all day long" and added it is "unbelievable" that it's his job.

"What we've shot so far, I'm really impressed with," Harrelson told EW. "Getting to hang out with these guys -- Emma, and Abbie, and Jesse, and Ruben -- I feel so lucky, really, really lucky."

New actors have joined the fun, too. The sequel will also star Rosario Dawson, Luke Wilson, Thomas Middleditch, Avan Jogia, and Zoey Deutch. We don't know the specifics of each of their role yet, but we're excited to see the new characters, whether they be living or undead.

The script was penned by the same screenwriters as the original, Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese. Production kicked off in January, and "Zombieland 2" is due out Oct. 11.
