UPDATE: SDCC ’09: ‘World War Z’ Seeking New Director

UPDATE: Contrary to what we’re beng told, Max Brooks’ manager is telling B-D that Marc Forster is in fact still attached to direct. Now we play the waiting the game. Some word came it at the San Diego Comic Con that Paramount Pictures is currently seeking a new director to get behind the camera for their forthcoming adaptation of World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War. Marc Forster, who bored us to death with Quantum of Solace, was originally slated to direct. The book is a sober telling of the aftermath of a war fought against a legion of humans who were inflicted with a virus, died and were reanimated into flesh-eating zombies. “World War Z” will be published in the fall by Crown. Written by the author of the satire “The Zombie Survival Guide.”
