World War Z movie

'Pitt beats DiCaprio' in film bid

Pitt recently starred in Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's film Babel
Brad Pitt has beaten Leonardo DiCaprio in a bidding war for the film rights to zombie book World War Z, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Pitt's production company Plan B and studio Paramount Pictures competed with DiCaprio's firm Applan Way, backed by Warner Bros, the report said.

Max Brooks's novel is set 10 years after a global zombie epidemic and is due to be published this autumn.

It follows the success of Brooks' 2003 book Zombie Survival Guide.

It was not revealed how much Plan B and Paramount paid for the rights.

DiCaprio will soon be seen in The Departed, a crime drama directed by Martin Scorsese and produced by Pitt and Plan B.

And Pitt is due to play Jesse James in an upcoming Hollywood movie about the legendary outlaw.

I hear Zombie Survival Guide is very good, for example he's a "slow zombie" purist so at least World War Z won't have zombies running around like monkeys on speed. I can only have hope, an original zombie movie is finally being made. And hey, maybe Angelina Jolie will star?

Sounds like it could have potential. I'd much rather see Pitt doing this than DiCaprio. You know, the whole "lesser of two evils" thing...

Isn't it kind of early to option a book when it hasn't even been published yet?
Jesus. Hollywood is really desperate, huh?

Here's the trailer:

http://trailers.apple.com/trailers/paramount/worldwarz/

I still haven't even read the book yet. I realize it's just a teaser trailer, but it reminds me of the remake of "War of the Worlds." I couldn't happen to think of George Romero while watching it. The cost to film/create the two minutes in that trailer alone probably cost more than the budgets of "Land", "Diary" and "Survival" combined.

That seriously was some of the worst CGI I have seen since that Will Smith "I Am Legend" piece of shit. Max Brooks' book was great and this movie looks to me like it's just using the name 'cause I see nothing in that trailer resembling anything in the book. What the hell is Hollywood thinking anymore? The zombies in that trailer made it look like a fucking Looney Toons cartoon.

For once I'd like to see a zombie flick that did NOT follow tradition. Why are zombies always hungry? Why do they want to eat people? Why can't they just shamble around aimlessly without attacking people? Make something different and maybe I'll want to watch it but not this cartoon.

You've obviously never seen "Sex in the City 2."

And why don't they ever attack each other? They're dead and stupid. They shouldn't even have a clue.

But yeah I agree that this looks awful. Reminds me of 2012. I never read World War Z but I have the zombie survival guide from which I believe the book was a sequel (prequel) of. The zombies are more or less your Romero type zombie. They didn't run.
