Brad Pitt To Star in Zombie Movie
Actor Brad Pitt is reportedly set to star in the upcoming Paramount film “World War Z.” The film is an adaptation of the 2006 novel “World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War” from Max Brooks.
The post-apocalyptic zombie tale is one of several zombie related novels from Brook, the other two are entitled “The Zombie Survival Guide” and “The Zombie Survival Guide: Recorded Attacks.” Speculation that Pitt would star in “World War Z” has been going on since his production company Plan B purchased the rights to the book in 2007. Paramount has optioned the movie rights to Brooks’ “World War Z” as well as his two other zombie related works.
According to Monsters & Critics, Paramount is hoping to release the film in 2012 and that the flick can enjoy the same surprise success as the 2009 film “ZombieLand.” Brooks’ novels have enjoyed a cult following since they were released.
