One minute, it’s dead. Then, it’s back from the dead. Then, it’s movin faster than expected. Just like the Zombieland zombies. Cinematographer Robert Richardson is now prepping for World War Z to begin production overseas. Which means, that principal photography could begin as early as the end of the month.
Although it seems unlikely that the movie can be up and running so quickly, keep in mind that the project has been in development hell for so long that a lot of the prep is probably already done. As ScreenRant proposes, it would make sense for Paramount to want to get this one out as quickly as possible given the cost and the multitude of zombie movies that will soon oversaturat the box office. They definitely want to get this one in theaters before the Scary Movie guys ruin the genre.
