Brad Pitt In “World War Z”

Brad Pitt is officially attached to star in the film adaptation of Max Brooks’ “World War Z” for Paramount Pictures and Plan B reports MTV News.

Set a decade after a virus has turned much of the planet’s population into zombies, the story follows a journalist interviewing subjects from around the world about their experiences during the ‘zombie war’. The book fuses elements of political satire, war and survival horror as it explores how various nations, governments and individuals respond to the crisis.

Paramount has also apparently optioned the movie rights to two more of his projects, including “The Zombie Survival Guide” and “The zombie Survival Guide: Recorded Attacks.” Marc Forster (“Quantum of Solace”) has been attached to direct.
