'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.
