World War Z is a 2013 American action horror film directed by Marc Forster. The screenplay by Matthew Michael Carnahan, Drew Goddard, and Damon Lindelof is from a screen story by Carnahan and J. Michael Straczynski, based on the title of the 2006 novel of the same name by Max Brooks. The film stars Brad Pitt as Gerry Lane, a former United Nations investigator who must travel the world to find a way to stop a zombie pandemic.
In January 2012, director Forster and Paramount said that “They each view World War Z as a trilogy that would have the grounded, gun-metal realism of Matt Damon‘s Jason Bourneseries tethered to the unsettling end-times vibe of AMC’s The Walking Dead“. Plans for future installments were shelved due to the film’s production troubles.
On February 8, 2017, Paramount announced that the sequel has still not started filming and would not be released until 2018 or possibly even 2019. On June 24, 2017, David Fincher was confirmed by Paramount as the director of the sequel, with Brad Pitt returning to his role.
In a 2012 interview, Brooks stated the film had nothing in common with the novel other than the title.
