"World War Z" Details Revealed

Posted: December 4th, 2008 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"World War Z" Details RevealedSubmit Comment
It was recently announced that "Quantum of Solace" director Marc Forster would be directing the upcoming big screen adaptation of Max Brook's "World War Z," a novel about a worldwide infestation of flesh-eating zombies.

Writer J. Michael Straczynski ("Babylon 5") chatted with MTV News about having Forster onboard and what we can expect from the new movie.

"We talk about it as a thriller, the closest comparison being 'The Bourne Identity,'" explained Straczynski. "Most zombie movies to this point have been small, focusing on a few people in a house. And this has got real scare. You're in India with hundreds of boats trying to get out of there with a tidal wave of zombies. The scale of what we're doing here is phenomenal."

He added that the first draft of the screenplay was completed in the Spring, and the "World War Z" team had been waiting for a director for several months before Forster was attached. "Now that Marc is here, I'm working with his notes to make one final pass on the script," he said. "Our hope is to get it moving into production by the first of the year."

As for how he plans to adapt the novel... "The fictional concept of the book is that its written by someone with the UN, so let's tell that story," explained Straczynski. "Let's show the book being written. We follow this guy all over the world as he goes on these interviews, and he has his own personal story as well. You're cutting between the past and the present, how he got to this point."

The book was entertaining... I'd definitely see the movie. I just really hope they do it well. It could have a huge potential.

The movie sounds much more entertaining that nthe book whihc was more World War Zzzzzzz. An entire chapter on the socio-economic fallout from dealing with a world wide zombie plague/war told in first person? Sorry, just blow some sh*t up please. JMS is a great writer so hopefully this will live up to the potential the book failed to realize.
