Anthony Mackie Goes From Vampires to ‘World War Z’ Zombies

Two years after his breakout turn in The Hurt Locker, Anthony Mackie has received an offer to star opposite Brad Pitt in Paramount Pictures’ epic zombie adaptation World War Z, reports Variety. He can next be seen in Fox’s Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

Earlier this week Mireille Enos (AMC’s “The Killing”) landed the role of Brad Pitt’s wife in the PG-13 zombie flick budgeted at around $150 million.

World War Z 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.
