Bryan Cranston – who has shown his diversity as an actor in AMC’s incredible “Breaking Bad” – is in negotiations to join Paramount’s World War Z, a post-apocalyptic thriller starring Brad Pitt, writes THR.
The role is said to be small but flashy; little is known about the part. The film is an adaptation of a Max Brooks novel of the same name that depicts a global zombie takeover a decade after the fact. Marc Forster is directing.
The film, from Skydance Productions, features a cast that includes a current AMC cohort of Cranston’s in Mireille Enos, star of The Killing; and James Badge Dale, who appeared on AMC’s now defunct Rubicon.
Z, written by Matthew Michael Carnahan and J. Michael Straczynski, is currently in production and will be released in 2012.
