At the beginning of the year, we posted that World War Z 2 lost its director J.A. Bayona due to the fact that he needed to finish up work on his upcoming film A Monster Calls. Since then, there’s been pretty much nothing of import to report on the film.
That changes today as Variety is reporting that Brad Pitt is looking to land none other than David Fincher (Fight Club, Gone Girl) as the new director! The site reports that the talks are progressing far and that “…no one else currently has the offer to direct.”
The two previously worked together on 1995’s psychological horror/thriller Seven as well as Fight Club and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
World War Z 2 is expected to begin filming in the beginning of 2017 and has a current release date of June 9th, 2017, although it’s nearly a given that it will be pushed back.
What do you think of this news? Personally, I’m blown away by this! I think it could be an absolutely incredible film with this kind of talent!
