Bloody Disgusting is being told that Paramount Pictures is looking to cast Alicia Vikander in their big screen adaptation of World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War. While there are no offers out yet, she would land the role of “Segen” if the cards play out.
She would star alongside Brad Pitt, Mireille Enos and Anthony Mackie in the flick being directed by Quantum of Solace‘s Marc Forster.
Based on the best-selling novel by Max Brooks, “ ‘World War Z’ follows United Nations employee Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt) as he tries to stop a global Zombie pandemic. With armies crumbling and governments rendered useless, Gerry must head out into a hellish and gruesome new world to find allies in his cause. In each country he visits, he learns new information about the origin and habits of the Zombies (or Zs as they’re now called) and begins to build a plan to destroy them. Throughout his odyssey, Gerry longs to be reunited with his wife and children. But there’s something he has to do first… Save the human race.”
