Brad Pitt’s “World War Z 2” is confirmed and reports say that it may not pick up from where the first film ended. Read on!
“World War Z 2” will hit the theaters in 2017 and Brad Pitt will lead the movie once again as the main antagonist of the story, Gerry Lane.
According to Vine Report, the adaptation of Max Brook’s same titled novel is set to amaze the fans once again two years from now and Dennis Kelly and J.A Bayona are tapped to take over the highest grossing zombie film as of now from its original screenwriter and director.
One of the writers of the film, Steven Knight, opened up about the upcoming film and based on his interview, Collider noted that hints about the possible plot may be gathered to what the writer said about what he liked the most in WWZ.
Knight revealed that the “beauty of the first film was the way that it never paused for breath. It never spent a moment thinking, ‘Hang on a minute, we’d better tell the audience what this is all about.’ It stayed in the moment, it stayed with that person.”
The 56-year-old admitted that he was basically given a blank slate when he was approached about the sequel. He was asked ‘How do we move this along?’
On the other hand, rumor has it that the next franchise may not pick up from where the movie left off as there were claims that the sequel will be more related from the book, meaning the stories and scenes will more likely to be based more from Brook’s novel.
KPop Starz reported that the movie will be co-produced by Skydance Productions along with Brad Pitt, Jeremy Kleiner, Dede Gardner and Ian Bryce as the film’s producer.
“World War Z 2” will premiere on June 9, 2017.
