“World War Z 2” Delayed, “Silver Lake” Sets Date

Paramount Pictures has reportedly delayed (yet again) principal photography on the David Fincher-directed “World War Z” sequel following this week’s report of Brad Pitt confirming his reunion with Quentin Tarantino on that filmmaker’s next film “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” at Sony Pictures.

The delay is said to be entirely due to Pitt, who stars in and produces WWZ2 and is key to the whole endeavour. Filming, which was to take place in the Summer, will now kick off in the Fall.

Meanwhile “It Follows” writer/director David Robert Mitchell finally returns with the thriller “Under the Silver Lake” which A24 has been sitting on for a little while. The distributor has now set a June 22nd limited theatrical release for the film which stars Andrew Garfield, Riley Keough and Topher Grace.

The story follows a man who becomes obsessed with the strange circumstances of a billionaire mogul’s murder and the kidnapping of a girl.
