For all those who have seen the zombie apocalypse movie “World War Z” will remember the movie and what kind of impact the movie had. Brad Pitt was hoping to make a potential franchise out of it for himself and played the lead role of a UN investigator Gerry Lane. News about the movie’s sequel got out pretty early and it is now being reported that the first draft for the sequel too has been turned in. Read on for more details.
According to Venture Capital Post, after the first movie’s success at the box office, Pitt is expected to reprise his role as the UN Investigator in the second movie as well. The film’s writer Steven Knight recently revealed that a first draft of the movie has been turned in and the movie is currently in the works. Perhaps another reason why a sequel is being made is because the first movie grossed about $540 million at the box office.
Though Knight did not share any information about what the first draft of the sequel has, but he has been vocal about what he liked in the first movie. According to him, the first movie didn’t pause for breath, it was always at the moment and it stayed with the person. The rest of the story was pretty self explanatory as it showed what happens when a zombie apocalypse takes place and how the human race has to cope up with the imminent danger and save themselves from the savages who have spread all around the world.
Cinema Blend had earlier reported that the movie would go in a completely different direction. When Knight was writing a treatment for it, he had stated that the movie would not pick up from where Gerry Lane’s story ended in the first one. “World War Z” is being produced by Plan B Entertainment and according to early reports, it might release alongside “Fantastic Four 2” in 2017.
