Another one bites the dust.
Scheduled for release on June 9th of this year, we were pretty damn certain that the sequel to 2013’s World War Z was at some point going to be pushed back; after all, filming hasn’t begun and a director isn’t even locked in. Last we heard, Brad Pitt wanted David Fincher to direct, and though that could still happen, today we bring the news we knew we were going to eventually report.
Paramount just pulled the tentatively titled World War Z 2 from the release schedule. Based on what we’re hearing, they’re now looking to a 2018 or 2019 release.
Around this time last year, director Juan Antonio Bayona departed the project.
