David Fincher and Brad Pitt to Wage World War Z 2

Share

Though the first World War Z was a hit, it's not necessarily a movie I was excited to see a sequel for.

If the deal is finalized as expected, it would mark a big milestone in the long development process that started last summer. However, according to IGN, it's star Brad Pitt that has been pushing to get David Fincher on board to direct, and apparently Fincher also has a close relationship with new Paramount CEO Jim Gianopulos. Pitt met with a handful of directors but nothing materialised until he chose to reach out to Fincher.

Brad Pitt is set to reprise his role from the 2013 action horror movie, which received mixed reviews but performed well at the box office.

The warning comes after North Korea last week accused Australia of "blindly and zealously toeing the U.S. line" and threatened a nuclear strike.

World War Z 2's release date is still to TBA but production is expected to begin in 2018. Fincher has always been a rumored choice for the project thanks to his close ties with star Brad Pitt, but things never really solidified until this year when a new studio head took over for Paramount.

Fincher has not directed a feature film since 2014's Gone Girl, having turned his attention to the small screen of late.

The pair have teamed up on three previous movies: Se7en, Fight Club and The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button.

The problem is worse. "We are tremendously interconnected in our economy with that of the United States", Trudeau said. The tariffs will have a drastic effect on the province, as the USA accounts for half of B.C.'s lumber exports.

While plot details are still thin, the finale of World War Z saw the surviving human population figuring out how to disguise themselves among the zombies.

The "World War Z" sequel may have just scored a major director. Fincher was said to be interested in telling a more human story, focusing the film on a man and his family navigating the world during the zombie apocalypse for less than the $190 million dollar original.
