The big Zombie apocalypse movie starring Brad Pitt has its sequel seemingly canceled. The film is loosely based on the book of the same name by Max Brooks. The film highly deviates from the source material. To the surprise of fans, the movie received high critical appraise for its thrilling shots and high-octane suspense and action elements.
The director of the first movie Marc Foster announced back in 2012. That there is going to be a trilogy. But that plans never become a reality after major development setbacks in the first movie.
In June of 2017, it was announced by the paramount studios that David flincher was hired to direct the movie. And everything was set to take place in 2018. However, Flincher was already booked for his television series, which he is directing.
The Cast of World War Z 2!!
If the movie was happening then we might see Brad Pitt as Gerry Lane, he is a UN investigator, speaks Spanish, wears a scarf, armor crafting and gun fighting dad of two daughters and a loving husband. As he travels from one set piece to another in search of a cure or a way to stop the apocalypse.
The cast of the movie might also include Fana Mokoena as Thierry Umatomi, United nation’s Deputy General Secretary. Also, some other supporting cast members include Mireille Enos, Daniella Kertesz, and David Morse. The rest of them are Ludi Boeken, Pierfrancesco, and Ruth Negga from the previous film.
The trouble in paradise
In China, it is the government policy to refrain from the screening of movies or content that portray superstition or civil unrest. In the case of a movie about apocalypse, it is both. So, the studios are afraid of greenlighting a 200 million dollar movie.
David Flincher was working on Mindhunter, that’s why he couldn’t work on World War Z.
