MTV has confirmed that Brad Pitt will be starring in the film adaptation of World War Z. The book by Max Brooks was part of a bidding war between Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio’s production companies. Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment has secured the rights to World War Z and two other novels by Max Brooks. Marc Forster is set to direct with Pitt in the lead in this zombie apocalypse film which is slated for a 2012 release.
I am a huge lover of zombie films and I actually have a copy of World War Z which I have not read yet. Now I have a reason to crack open the book. Are you as excited as I am about this news? Have you read the book? If so, what are your thoughts?
