For those that have not yet heard the news, it looks like World War Z will be making it’s way to theaters in 2012. Here are some details:
It’s coming. World War Z. The long-awaited adaptation of the zombie cult classic is shooting, and will be in theaters late next year. Paramount announced a December 21, 2012 holiday release for World War Z, director Marc Forster’s adaptation of Max Brooks’ novel about a global zombie takeover. This stars Brad Pitt, Mireille Enos, James Badge Dale and Bryan Cranston; Pitt is also producing with Plan B partner Dede Gardner, financed by Skydance Productions. This puts the zombie epic up against Disney’s The Lone Ranger and Ang Lee’s Life of Pi that very weekend, plus Tarantino’s Django Unchained on Christmas Day.
Though some claim that the movie will tick off some fans of the book since it will deviate from the book, it is hard not to get excited about a new zombie movie, especially one with a decent budget to get it done.
What so you, ZAC fans? Will this be one to add to the collection or another failed attempt at a classic?
