In talking with the LA Times, Money Ball star Brad Pitt opened up about World War Z, Paramount Pictures’ epic zombie adaptation opening in theaters December 21, 2012. Within the chat Pitt revealed that the studio is hoping to franchise the film into a trilogy!
“[Director Marc] Forster and Paramount Pictures each view “World War Z” as a trilogy that would have the grounded, gun-metal realism of, say, Damon’s Jason Bourne series tethered to the unsettling end-times vibe of AMC’s “The Walking Dead”. ” A fresh zombie franchise? Yes please!
Mireille Enos, James Badge Dale, Bryan Cranston, and David Morse also star.
The story “revolves around United Nations employee Gerry Lane (Pitt), who traverses the world in a race against time to stop the Zombie pandemic that is toppling armies and governments and threatening to decimate humanity itself. Enos plays Gerry’s wife Karen Lane; Kertesz is his comrade in arms, Segen.”
