World War Z to Film in Scotland

Glasgow will serve as a backdrop for the zombie apocalypse.

UK, June 14, 2011

The adaptation of World War Z, starring Brad Pitt, will shoot in Scotland this August.

According to the Sunday Mail, key action scenes will be filmed in Glasgow, standing in for the US city of Philadelphia. The scenes are said to be action-heavy, featuring plenty of explosions and gunfire.

The film is based on Max Brooks's best-selling novel which chronicles a decade-long war against the zombie horde from multiple viewpoints. The film is being produced by Pitt's production company Plan B, with Marc Foster (Quantum of Solace) attached to direct.

IGN recently reported who will join Pitt to face the zombie hordes.

World War Z is due for release sometime in the summer of 2012.

yeah, it was really awesome. i kinda wish they'd go with a relatively-unknown-actor cast, at least, if they're going to try to make it a docu-film kinda thing. if not, i guess it doesn't matter.

World War Z Cast Takes Headshot

Fox, Harris not joining Brad Pitt for zombie hunt.

June 30, 2011

While reports had pegged Ed Harris and Lost star Matthew Fox as costarring in Paramount's upcoming zombie opus World War Z, it appears such talk was premature.

Like a gunshot to the head of that previous news, Vulture says that neither thespian will make it into the adaptation of Max Brooks' bestselling book after all.

"Fox has a scheduling conflict stemming from his prior commitment to star in I, Alex Cross with Tyler Perry at Summit Entertainment; less clear is why the Harris deal didn't make," says the site.

World War Z will be fine though. It has Brad Pitt headlining the cast, and is already shooting in Malta.

Just watched the trailer for this. I know many are burned out by the zombie genre, but I think this looks fantastic.

Im one of those-- looks a little better-- but really just seems like more of the same..

And did they take some of this from Deep Impact--- Morgan Freeman is president again, and I swear some of those scenes were clips of those bunkers they were hiding in that movie as well (at least the outside...)

HA, good catch - I saw this on another blog, where they (like me!) obviously were fooled...

While the film is scheduled for release in December of 2012, we know eager fans are dying (and then promptly returning to life) to catch a glimpse of what this epic zombie movie will look like. So as not to incite more hateful rants on YouTube, let me clarify that this is our fan-made trailer for what we think (and hope) World War Z will look like:

World War Z With Brad Pitt Pushed to 2013

by ShockTillYouDrop

March 13, 2012

Paramount has reconsidered World War Z's release date. Rather than debut the film on December 21st of this year, it is pushing the adaptation of Max Brooks' novel to June 21, 2013. We're not sure if the studio simply felt it wasn't a "holiday" release or if the film needs more time in post-production, but given the epic nature of the story - and I'm hearing that this thing is huge - it might be the latter.

Directed by Marc Forster; Brad Pitt, Mireille Enos, James Badge Dale, Julia Levy-Boeken, Bryan Cranston, Danielle Kertesz, Matthew Fox and David Morse star.

The film is detailed tale in which a researcher for the U.N. Postwar Commission interviews survivors from countries all over the world, 10 years after the crisis, to gather a first-person post-mortem on a zombie war that obliterated every country on the map.

Damon Lindelof Enlists for World War Z

Source: ComingSoon

June 8, 2012

Originally planned for release this December, Marc Forsters's big screen adaptation of Max Brooks' World War Z was, earlier this year, bumped to June 21, 2013 to accommodate extensive reshoots. Now, The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Prometheus and "LOST" writer Damon Lindelof has been brought aboard for some rewriting.

The film, set to star Brad Pitt, Mireille Enos, Daniella Kertesz, James Badge Dale, Matthew Fox and David Morse, revolves around United Nations employee Gerry Lane (Pitt), who traverses the world in a race against time to stop the Zombie pandemic that is toppling armies and governments and threatening to decimate humanity itself.

The original script was drafted by Matthew Michael Carnahan.
