“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.”
Starring alongside Pitt will be Mireille Enos, James Badge Dale, Lucy Aharish, Matthew Fox, Bryan Cranston, and David Morse, making for a rather brilliant cast.
Marc Forster (Stranger than Fiction, Machine Gun Preacher) is at the helm, directing from a script by Matthew Michael Carnahan (The Kingdom), with Drew Goddard (Cloverfield) hired to pen the re-writes for the extended re-shoots.
Behind the scenes, Pitt has also produced the film through his shingle, Plan B Entertainment, alongside Dede Gardner (Killing Them Softly) and Jeremy Kleiner (Kick-Ass), with David Ellison (True Grit) and Oscar-winning Graham King (The Departed) executive producing, making for a brilliant team working to bring the project to the big screen.
World War Z will be hitting hard in the UK and US on 21st June, 2013. I can’t wait. This looks immense. For now, here’s the trailer to show you what we have to look forward to. Enjoy.
