"World War Z" Sequel May Happen!

Posted on at

"World War Z" was plagued with production problems, but do you know that the zombie flick became Brad Pitt's biggest blockbuster yet?  Worldwide, "World War Z' has sold $535 million worth of box-office tickets, and that became one of the reasons why we're now hearing sequel plans.  But originally, "World War Z" was planned as a trilogy but Paramount nixed the idea after all the production drama.   

And heck, drama or not, I enjoyed "World War Z" immensely, I even listed it as one of the best of 2013...so far (video below).

In an interview with Variety, Pitt said that they're talking about a possible sequel, and that they have "so many ideas on the table from the time we spent developing this thing and figuring out how the zombie worlds work. [...] We're going to do our best and see what we get out of it. We've got to get the script right first to determine if we go further."

The open-ended conclusion that was rewritten by Damon Lindelof, Drew Goddard and Christopher McQuarrie certainly makes a sequel possible.   

Here's the video of my Best Movies of 2013...So Far where I chose "World War Z" as one of the worthy films this year!
