Matthew Fox and Ed Harris won’t protect us from the zombie scourge after all. Both actors were in talks to appear in Marc Forster‘s World War Z but have now dropped out.

Fox has a scheduling conflict with his prior commitment to try to kill Madea in I, Alex Cross. Harris didn’t provide a reason for exit from the film but let’s just assume it also involves trying to kill Madea. Someone needs to step up and do it. (Vulture)
