Screen Daily has shared that World War Z has received the green light to go ahead and film starting in June. The movie will be filmed in UK and Hungary.
World War Z's script was written by J. Michael Straczynski and Matthew Michael Carnahan and will be directed by Marc Forster. Brad Pitt is still set to star and is producing. Actress Mireille Enos is attached with the possibility of Anthony Mackie joining up.
When asked about the script in a previous interview, author Max Brooks had this to say:
I read Straczynski’s first draft, and it was f—ing brilliant. As the book writer I know that’s sacrilege to say, but it really was good. I turned to my wife and said 'Honey, this is as good as the book. This is gonna be an amazing movie.'
World War Z is one of my favorite books of all time. No exaggeration. With solid talent attached to the film I am very much looking forward to this! If you haven't read the book, I highly recommend you pick it up!
