World War Z Rumblings
The much-anticipated World War Z zombie flick won’t be released until 21st Dec 2012, but producers are reportedly already thinking about turning the zombie adventure into a trilogy.
The Paramount Pictures thriller stars Brad Pitt as a United Nations employee racing to stop a zombie pandemic. The movie now in production is loosely based on the award winning novel by Max Brooks. World War Z was initially thought to be a one-shot adaptation, but it looks as if Paramount has other ideas. In an L.A. Times article about Pitt’s career, the actor discussed his work on the most expensive zombie movie in Hollywood history. Director Marc Forster and the studio both view World War Z as a potential franchise for Pitt, eyeing it as a trilogy.
No further information yet on how far Paramount plans to stretch the source material or how much of it will be wholly original to the movie, but it seems promising that if World War Z is a box office success, we’ll have more top notch zombie movies coming.
