Vulture is reporting that World War Z, Brad Pitt’s movie about a global undead apocalypse, may be dying (or is it re-dying?) unless Paramount can find a co-financier.
The site reports that the film currently has a price tag of more than $125 million, and the studio is fervently searching for a partner to share the risk. If they can’t find one, it’s likely that Paramount will pull the plug on the adaptation of the Max Brooks book, which was to be directed by Quantum of Solace‘s Marc Forster and star Pitt, who would also produce.
Here’s the odd part of the report, Paramount Film Group president Adam Goodman insists to Vulture, “We’re really committed to making a big, kick-ass giant movie with Marc Forster and Brad Pitt.” Although, Goodman also stated that Paramount signed a deal with Forster assuring them of a PG-13 cut. Erg.
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. This is one story I cannot see as PG-13…
