It seems that zombies are shuffling slower than ever these days as Paramount's 'World War Z' project has been pulled from its expected 21 December 2012 release and pushed all the back 6 months to 21 June 2013. Marc Forster is in the directors chair and working from an adapted screenplay by Matthew Michael Carnahan. The new action horror is based on the novel by Max Brooks and stars Brad Pitt (who is also producing). Mireille Enos, Anthony Mackie, James Badge Dale, Julia Levy-Boeken, David Morse ('Disturbia') and Bryan Cranston ('Breaking Bad') all co-star in the project.
"The Zombie War came unthinkably close to eradicating humanity. Max Brooks, driven by the urgency of preserving the acid-etched first-hand experiences of the survivors from those apocalyptic years, traveled across the United States of America and throughout the world, from decimated cities that once teemed with upwards of thirty million souls to the most remote and inhospitable areas of the planet. He recorded the testimony of men, women, and sometimes children who came face-to-face with the living, or at least the undead, hell of that dreadful time. World War Z is the result. Never before have we had access to a document that so powerfully conveys the depth of fear and horror, and also the ineradicable spirit of resistance, that gripped human society through the plague years."
'World War Z' will now open across the US from 21 June 2013.'World War Z'
