World War Z Begins Shooting Next Month

It’s almost hard to believe but it’s true – the long-awaited film adaptation of Max Brooks’ thoroughly fun, politically-themed, zombie war satire novel “World War Z” is about to begin filming.

Screen Daily reports that the Paramount/Plan B production is set to begin shooting in Malta in late June. The production will then do some filming in the UK before heading to Hungary in early October.

Brad Pitt stars as a UN researcher who interviews the survivors of the worldwide conflict that ensued after a pandemic swept the globe that turned many into zombies.

Anthony Mackie, Mireille Enos and Alicia Vikander also star. Marc Forster directs from a screenplay by J. Michael Straczynski and Matthew Michael Carnahan.
