  • Rumored titles for the film included Zombieland 2, Zombieworld, and Zombieland: Double Tap. On January 29, 2019, the film was confirmed to be titled the latter, which is a reference to rule #2 in Zombieland (2009).
  • In Zombieland (2009), the second rule is "double tap", which is the sequel's main subtitle, which is interesting because Zombieland: Double Tap is the second movie in the franchise. <--- According to Captain Obvious here.
  • The film reunites Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd, who both previously worked together on the Ghostbusters franchise, which is also distributed by Columbia Pictures.
  • This will be the third movie Woody Harrelson has worked on with director Ruben Fleischer. The previous two were "Zombieland" (2009) and "Venom" (2018).
  • This was filmed in Panavision (anamorphic) with ARRI Alexa cameras, unlike its predecessor which was filmed spherically with Panavision Genesis cameras in the Super 35 format.
  • Luke Wilson and Thomas Middleditch's characters are called Albuquerque and Flagstaff respectively. These were going to be the original names of Woody Harrelson and Jesse Eisenberg's characters respectively before Tallahassee and Columbus were chosen for them.
  • In Babylon, Columbus and the others sit around a table made of an Interstate 185 sign. Located in southwest Georgia, I-185 is an offshoot of I-85 connecting Columbus, GA with the Interstate Highway System. I-85 runs from just outside of Richmond, VA to Montgomery, AL. I-185 does not, however run from Columbus to Atlanta.
  • The scene in which Columbus stands on top of an RV, directing Tallahassee and Wichita to which direction the zombies are coming from, came from the final battle in an early draft of Zombieland which involved Columbus and Tallahassee's characters doing the same thing at an abandoned gas station.
  • Jesse Eisenberg said that it was very difficult to keep a straight face while filming scenes with Zoey Deutch.
  • The Elvis classic "Burning Love" that is played during the end credits was performed by Woody Harrelson.
  • The zombies being attracted to the fireworks is a reference to Land of The Dead where they launch fireworks from the Dead Reckoning to draw the zombies away from the teams scavenging for supplies.
  • This is the fourth film that Jessie Eisenberg and Woody Harrelson have together. This includes Zombieland, Now You See Me, Now You See Me 2, and now Zombieland: Double Tap.
  • The name of the character Zoey Deutch plays, Madison, is both a common girl's name and (in keeping with the series' theme of naming characters after American cities) the capital of Wisconsin.
  • Ryan Reynolds was considered for the role of Albuquerque, but had to turn it down due to scheduling conflicts.
  • Dan Aykroyd was rumored to be appearing as a fictionalized version of himself alongside Bill Murray, but this proved false in the final cut.
  • In the Motel Columbus, Wichita & Flagstaff are playing Magic the Gathering.
  • This is the second time Rosario Dawson and Woody Harrelson have worked together. The previous film being Seven Pounds (2008)
  • The song "Master of Puppets" by Metallica plays during the opening credits. Not only does this mirror the first movie which played "For Whom the Bell Tolls" by Metallica during its opening credits, but the creators of Zombieland had originally tried using "Master of Puppets" in the first film but could not afford the rights to it.
  • Tallahassee at one point signs a presidential pardon for Wesley Snipes; Woody Harrelson and he co-starred in "White Men Can't Jump", "Money Train" and Wildcats (1986).
  • The list of double, triple, quadruple taps, and so on makes a joke about whatever the nine-uple word would be. The word would be nonuple.
  • During the main title sequence, Abigail Breslin is credited after the main title of the film. Her co-stars Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg and Emma Stone are credited before the main title.
  • The idea for an enterprise Madison speaks about is an obvious reference to Uber: the company, founded in 2009, obviously doesn't exist in the "Zombieland" universe, since the zombie apocalypse started exactly in 2009.
  • One of the escape asylums in the film is called Babylon. Emma Stone will star in a film with the same name in 2021.
  • Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg) mentions that Madison (Zoey Deutch) is almost as pretty as 406. In the previous movie, Columbus lived in apartment 408, and 406 was his pretty neighbor lady (Amber Heard) who turned into a zombie and tried to eat him.
  • When Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson) prepares to depart, Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg) expresses his hope to hear a better goodbye than the "pig" he used last time. In Zombieland (2009), Tallahassee tried saying goodbye by quoting "That'll do, pig" from Babe (1995), which Columbus called "the worst goodbye I've ever heard".
  • When Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg) and Flagstaff (Thomas Middleditch) are comparing their respective 'rules/commandments to survive Zombieland', they find that they both have one for keeping important stuff dry. Columbus' rule is "#2: Ziploc bags". This rule was featured in a deleted scene from Zombieland (2009), where Columbus explained that "you've got enough problems; moisture shouldn't be one of them".
  • Director Ruben Fleischer said that he was inspired to make Zombieland (2009) after seeing Shaun of the Dead (2004). The scene in Zombieland: Double Tap where Columbus and Tallahassee meet their 'counterparts' Albuquerque and Flagstaff may have been inspired by a scene in Shaun of the Dead, where Shaun's group of zombie apocalypse survivors meets another group that consists of remarkably similar characters.
  • The most simple-minded zombies are nicknamed 'Homers' in the beginning, an obvious nod to the similarly oafish Homer Simpson from The Simpsons (1989). Not only is the word 'Homer' on screen spelled in the same font as used by the series ("Simpsonfont"); the letter O is replaced by a donut, Homer Simpson's favorite snack. Coincidentally, Woody Harrelson guest starred in The Simpsons episode "Fear of Flying".
  • 3rd movie Woddy Harrelson and Emma Stone are in together. Friends with Benefits- although in no scenes together, and both Zombieland and Zombieland: Doubletap
  • Music playing during the first post credit scene, during the Garfield 3 junket, is the Kenny Loggins song "I'm Alright", which was the theme music for Caddyshack, starring Bill Murray.

Spoilers

  • Bill Murray will not return for the sequel, as he died in the first film when Colombus (Jesse Eisenberg) shot him by accident.
  • It was hinted that Jesse Eisenberg's character, Columbus, will have a set of new rules coming up for this film. In fact, it's actually Thomas Middleditch, who plays a Columbus-like character named Flagstaff who has his own similar set of "Commandments".
  • The leaked plot of the film mentions that there will be new types of zombies, specifically called "super zombies". In the film, they are referred to as "T-800" zombies because, like the T-800 terminators in 'The Terminator', they are almost impossible to kill.
  • Upon announcement of the plot in mid January, It was revealed that the protagonists would face "evolved zombies". The types of zombies that will appear include: Homers (dumb ones), Hawking's (smart ones) and Ninjas (silent, deadly ones). There are also "T-800's" (un-killable ones), named after the T-800 terminators in the 'Terminator' films.
  • This will be Bill Murray's 3rd zombie film. The first Zombieland, and another which will also be released in 2019; The Dead Don't Die.
  • The end of the film reveals that "Day Zero" (the beginning of the zombie apocalypse) coincided with the 2009 release of 'Garfield 3: Flabby Tabby' and shows a zombie outbreak during the press interviews for the film with Bill Murray. Bill Murray never made a third Garfield film.
  • This is intended for the "Crazy Credits" section: There is a mid credit scene in which Bill Murray is giving an interview with Al Roker for a fictitious 3rd installment of "Garfield", to which Al Roker turns into a Zombie, and Bill Murray exits the set, only to find there is a zombie attack happening in the lobby of the hotel the interview is conducted at. There is also a post credit scene in which Bill Murray pretends to cough up a fur ball during his interview for Garfield 3.
  • A poster for Garfield 3 can be seen in the mall before Columbus finds Madison.
  • In Zombieland, after Columbus shoots Bill Murray, one of his regrets is Garfield. Ironically in Zombieland double tap, the post credits scene with Mr Murray involves him doing an interview for Garfield 3.
  • Before Columbus goes to kill Madison as she allegedly turns into a zombie, he says, "Time to teach Lenny about the rabbits." This is a reference to John Steinbeck's novel 'Of Mice and Men," when George has to go kill Lenny, whom he distracts by talking about rabbits.
  • The film's pays homage to other zombie films. Especially Land of the Dead and Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, due to supposedly being safe in a cylindrical tower block.
  • While killing zombies during the mid-credits scene, Bill Murray quotes several lines from some of his most famous movies, including "Ghostbusters".
