    Default World War Z

    Z Day Rapidly Approaching | CHUD.com

    Shock Till You Drop is reporting that Screen Daily is reporting (I’m not linking to their story because it requires you to register, screw that) that the long awaited World War Z adaptation is gearing up to shoot all over the world starting in June. The film will be directed by Marc Forster, will star Brad Pitt and has a script penned by J. Michael Straczynski and Matthew Michael Carnahan. Production will reportedly begin in Malta.

    If you are a horror fan, you should be excited about this. Marc Forster (I like Quantum of Solace) is good. Brad Pitt is good. The source material, Max Brook’s novel, is good. The screenwriters are good. Of course the internet will respond with the usual “Zombies are played out!” sentiment, then turn around and gobble up the endless superhero content Hollywood churns out. News flash: Pretty much everything is “played out”. What matters is that you have a good story and that you tell it well. This project has the potential for greatness. Give it a chance
    Was hesitant to start a thread on this, but with Pitt attached this is a big project. And I know a lot of you are big fans of the book so I thought it was worth putting it out where you could see it.

    I haven't read the book, but on paper this looks awesome so far.

    Matthew Fox and Ed Harris Join WORLD WAR Z

    This cast is rounding out nicely. Ed Harris is terribly underrated.

    This is why I shouldn't drink so much! I just saw this thread and thought to myself, cool, a WWZ thread, I'll see what peeps have to say.

    And then I realized that I already posted here and have no recollection of doing so!

    But yeah, Adgy, I'll tell you what to do and you'll like it.

    Seriously, I do have mixed feelings. It is really a good book, but part of what makes it a good book is the fact that it works as a satire of the oral history style of writing, which might be actually relatively difficult to translate on screen. I do remain optimistic though.
