World War Z problems result in Lindelof rewrite

by on Jun.08, 2012, under Television

Is Paramount’s World War Z in serious trouble? The movie, which had already finished principle photography but recently announced that they were expecting 7 weeks of reshoots, reportedly had a third act that was so bad that Lost creator Damon Lindelof has been brought in to rewrite it.

World War Z, based on the novel by Max Brooks, was originally adapted by J. Michael Straczynski and then received rewrites by Matthew Michael Carnahan and stars Brad Pitt.

Fox and Harris jump from World War Z?

by on Jun.30, 2011, under Movies

World War Z, the post-Zombiepocalypse movie based on the book by Max Brooks being directed by Marc Forster (Quantum of Solace), penned by J. Michael Straczynski and Matthew Michael Carnahan (Lions for Lambs) and starring Brad Pitt, reportedly lost two of its other stars: Matthew Fox (Lost) and Ed Harris (The Abyss) – just as production is starting. Fox reportedly has a scheduling conflict (he is also scheduled to star in I, Alex Cross with Tyler Perry), but no word on why Harris has backed out. Auditions have already begun for replacements.

World War Z is a historical account of first-hand experiences of the zombie crisis garnered by the “author” as he travels to gather information for a United Nations report a decade after the war.
