‘World War Z’ Goes Back Into The Trenches For Another 7 Weeks!?

We already knew that World War Z, Paramount Pictures’ epic zombie adaptation starring Brad Pitt that was originally scheduled to open December 21, 2012, had been been pushed to June 21, 2013.

At the time I didn’t necessarily take that as a bad sign, but now I kind of do. Because the film has reportedly started an additional 7 weeks of photography in Budapest. That’s a LOT of time. That’s more than the entire shooting schedule of many (most?) films.

Per The Daily Mail, “Pitt has joined his fellow actors on locations in Budapest, where World War Z will go through seven weeks of additional shooting.” If this is correct, and it’s a big “if” considering the source – someone clearly isn’t happy with the film (which had already wrapped principal photography). Here’s hoping director Marc Forster gets what he needs this time out.

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.

Mireille Enos, James Badge Dale, Bryan Cranston, and David Morse also star.

    Did these people even read the novel? The novel has so many different perspectives of the zombie apocalypse and is recollections from a reporter’s interview stories. I saw Brad Pitt and knew this would more than likely turn out as crap….hate that such a great novel has to go to waste…. :(

    Someone better could have done this film and came up with something very creative and it could have been a great hit, what a waste of money and I haven’t even seen a trailer…
