World War Z

According to Screen Rant, "World War Z is the 2006 best-selling novel written by Max Brooks about a future global war against zombies. It is written in the form of interviews featuring multiple survivor perspectives from all over the world recounting their individual struggles throughout the war.

The novel began its translation to the big screen early last year when it was announced that Brad Pitt’s production company, Plan B Productions, would be partnering with Paramount to produce the film. J. Michael Straczynski, who wrote the recent "Changeling," was selected to write the screenplay."

"Quantum of Solace" director Marc Forster has been hired by Paramount to direct "World War Z."

Forster, who said he wouldn't do another Bond movie, said, "The genre always fascinated me, and when they pitched it to me, it reminded me of the paranoid conspiracy films of the 70's like 'All the President's Men.'"

More news to come! Catch ya' later!
