It was reported recently that Paramount had nixed a World War Z sequel from its slate.
Today, a new report has shed some light on the status of Brad Pitt‘s zombie pandemic sequel. THR reports that David Fincher wants to direct World War Z 2, but Paramount is dragging its heels. This is odd, to hold off on a movie like that with someone like Fincher willing to direct it.
Unless, I don’t know, but Fincher and Pitt are demanding truckloads of solid gold as payment.
But the director of Alien3 handling a large zombie movie is a tempting premise. Make it happen, Paramount! Ah shit, you’re just going to mention it every now and again like your alluding to Top Gun 2 and Beverly Hills Cop 4, aren’t you?
Marc Forster directed the original, which was elevated into ‘watchable’ territory after massive re-shoots saved the ending.
