Pitt’s Plan B’s sequel is still in its nascent stages, and confirmed to the site that director Marc Forster won’t be back. “We are talking about it,” says Pitt. “We are going to investigate a script. We have a lot of ideas we will cull from. Nobody is writing just yet, but we are compiling our ideas.”
Considering all of the behind-the-scenes drama before the film’s June 21 release, there was real fear inside Paramount that World War Z could flop. After almost a year of in-fighting, new edits, and a completely new ending being shot, it ended up being a summer behemoth. But that doesn’t make the scars go away. Many reports prior to the film’s release stated that Pitt, who fought Paramount tooth-and-nail for Forster to helm, was at odds with his once director friend over the mess that was World War Z. Thus, it’s no surprise he won’t return to the director’s chair.
Thankfully, World War Z was pretty good – not to mention, who wouldn’t want to see Paramount give another $200M zombie movie a go? That’s a once in a lifetime gift to horror fans….
