World War Z – Zombies still heading out way

Posted by LiveFor on April 22, 2010

Been an awfully long time since anything new was said about the adaption of Max Brooks’ zombie book. I was beginning to think it was never going to happen.

However in a recent interview with FEARnet the author had this to say.

Paramount just renewed the option for World War Z, for half the time and twice the money, so that might signal interest. We still got our director, Marc Forster, who’s raring to go. Were all waiting on Matt Carnahan’s new draft, which should come in a month or so. Once that comes in then I think it probably will have to be tweaked and brought to the studio but we’re sort of zeroing in on that moment where Paramount has to say yes or no.

I think the size of the book, the scope of the book, makes it hard to produce, in that this thing’s gotta be done right or it just can’t be done. You can’t do a cheap and dirty World War Z. It’s a world war, and I think that makes studio executives nervous. I think it limits its options, so that’s running against it.

The studio have shoved a load of money over to keep the rights so looks as if things may be getting fast tracked.

By the way that is a fan made poster from here.
