World War Z Movie

World War Z MovieWorld War Z, the post-apocalyptic horror novel written by Max Brooks, may well get a movie adaptation in a not too distant future: Paramount Pictures who won a bidding war back in 2006 for the feature film rights have renewed their option for a World War Z movie. So we're confident that the project will enter in production sooner than later. The film is currently listed for a release in 2012 on IMDb. Director Marc Forster is for now attached to the film and Actor Brad Pitt (he's already on board as producer) could well be part of the cast.

"A researcher for the U.N. Postwar Commission interviews survivors from all over the world in order to put together a post-mortem on a war that destroyed every country around the globe. A war involving nasty flesh eating zombies..."

The book World War Z is a collection of individual accounts in the form of interviews with characters conducted by the author. Along the story we get a better picture of what happened and what led to new political order in post World War Z. Let's hope that the script of the World War Z movie won't deviate by too much from the book, and that it won't boil down to a collection of gruesome scenes.

Anyway, hope to get more details about the movie World War Z soon.
