Spoiler: It’s not like the book.
It looks a little to Brad Pitt-y and not quite zombie-y enough.
The Zombie Ultimatum?
Hi, I’m Abe. Wanna party?
Load up the choppers like it’s the 731st.
Oops. I meant you SHOULD worry.
Scots look like Americans when they’re backlit just right.
For starters, I don’t remember Brad Pitt being in the book…at all.
‘World War Z’ could use a little Cranston.
Maybe the producers realize that the THREAT of zombies can be just as scary as actual zombies. I hope not, but maybe.
You won’t get to see Ed Harris kill a zombie with a shovel after all.
Aim for the brain, boys.
“Danger” is his middle name. No. Wait. It’s “Badge.”
If you like Mireille Enos or Mindy Kaling, you’d better put a casting ring on it.
Don’t Let It Bite You!!!
Don’t get too excited yet, but signs point to ‘World War Z’ being back on track with a June start date.
Max Brooks’ World War Z: An Oral History Of The Zombie War is easily in the upper echelons of zombie fiction. Then why is Paramount having a hard time finding somebody to pick up the tab?
Brad Pitt is about to launch World War Z, according to the book's author, Max Brooks.
After five years in limbo, Pitt's production company is finally moving forward with the project. Using Michael Straczynski's adapted screenplay, World War Z will chronicle life in a post-apocalyptic zombie-infested universe. Pitt himself will star in the film, which Paramount has slated for release in 2012.
Having read the book a few years back, I'm excited to see it headed to the big screen. I'm not excited enough to risk leaving my heavily fortified zombie-proof apartment/command center, but I'm excited none the less. That reminds me, does anyone know how to fix a chemical toilet? Mother is complaining about the smell. (Cinema Blend)
PEW. PEW. PEW.It's been a long time since we've heard anything about the adaptation of World War Z. Max Brooks, the book's author, spoke with MTV and gave the update that we're about a month away from seeing a rewrite from Matthew Carnahan. After that point, it's up to Paramount to decide when and how awesomely it gets made.He also acknowledged that the style of the book is impossible to translate to film and commended the original script's ability to weave a cohesive narrative from the numerous, sprawling entries in the book. Until we hear more, readers are advised to prepare for the impending zombie uprising. A nice way to do so would be with this combination night table/zombie-proof bat and shield. Also effective against cat burglars.
