Title: Writer, Zombieland
Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick wrote Paramount Pictures’ G.I. Joe: Retaliation, starring Dwayne Johnson and Bruce Willis, slated for a March, 2013 release. Retaliation follows Reese and Wernick’s first feature collaboration, Zombieland, which they wrote and executive-produced for Columbia Pictures in 2009.
Reese and Wernick have recently written screenplays for X-Men: Deadpool, starring Ryan Reynolds, for Twentieth Century Fox, Cowboy Ninja Viking for Universal Pictures, and Micronauts for Paramount, with Hasbro and Bad Robot producing.
Reese and Wernick first collaborated in 2001, creating, writing, and executive-producing The Joe Schmo Show for Spike TV. The series drew Spike’s highest-ever ratings. Joe Schmo was named to numerous Best Of lists, including TIME Magazine’s Top 10 TV Shows of the year and Entertainment Weekly’s 50 Best TV Shows Ever on DVD. Reese and Wernick followed up with Joe Schmo 2 and Invasion Iowa, a high-concept comedy hybrid starring William Shatner.
Reese has written movies for Pixar Animation Studios (Monsters, Inc.), Walt Disney Feature Animation (Dinosaur), and Warner Brothers (Clifford’s Really Big Movie), among others. Wernick has produced several network reality shows. He won three Emmy awards for his work in news.
