Though it looked like something of an undead film, rendered lifeless by bad reviews and production issues, World War Z has managed to drag its feet and grunt to a $119 million box office take, all but ensuring that a sequel would be made.
Then the studio made it official by actually ensuring it yesterday.
As everyone with an Internet connection seems to be aware, the film differs completely from its source material, Max Brooks‘ novel of the same name. But that divergence serves as a blessing, as it leaves lots of Brooks’ vignettes to serve as inspiration for the video-game like structure of the film.
Of course, the rumors of a $400 million budget (REALLY?) suggest that maybe this isn’t a good idea, aside from the fact that the movie was fairly middle-of-the-road, albeit innocuously.
So, I no one gets sick of zombies any time soon!
