The Pacific star James Badge Dale is going back into battle, albeit against an already-dead enemy.
Variety reports that Dale is in negotiations to join Brad Pitt in Paramount Picture’s World War Z, set 10 years after a global zombie epidemic.
Marc Forster is directing from J. Michael Straczynski and Matthew Carnahan’s script, which is adapted from Max Brooks’ popular novel, told in oral history form from various perspectives around the world.
Pitt will play a researcher for the U.N. Postwar Commission, while Mireille Enos of AMC’s “The Killing” was previously cast as his wife, a mother of two girls.
Dale will play Capt. Speke, an American soldier who trusts his instincts and is wise beyond his years. The character tries to alert authorities that the zombie threat is real, and is stuck in a military detention center when the zombie outbreak begins.
Production is slated to begin this July in London, Malta and other locales overseas.
