World War Z: Brad Pitt faces the undead

Many think of it as the blockbuster movie of the summer and they're not wrong if you ask me. World War Z -that is scheduled to hit cinemas by the 17th of June- is based on the book by Max Brooks (World War Z), son of the reknown for his comedies Mel Brooks! The original scenario was created by Joseph Michael Straczynski (Thor, Changeling) and Matthew Michael Carnahan (State of Play) and despite being hugely different than the script from the book, it was welcomed by the author as a nice change.


Everything was going great but after the end of the shooting, director Marc Forster decided he wanted to rewrite the third part of the script, so he called on Samon Lindelof who after having worked in both Lost and Prometheus, didn't seem as the best choice. In any case the final script tells the story of an ex military officer (UN) called Gerry Lane (Pitt) who after the outbreak of a lethal pandemic has to travel the world in order to save mankind from total  decimation while fighting deadly zombies.

Mireille Enos (The Killing) and Matthew Fox (Lost) complete the cast offering a lot of visual effects and a breath taking story line that will surely impress us!
