Some set pics from World War Z

Horror and zombie fans should be familiar with the novel World War Z: An Oral History of Zombie War. Max Brooks's post apocalyptic tale is an account of a great war between humans and zombies told through a collection of first-person accounts. It was a best seller, a big hit among some of us Basement Dwellers and guess what . . . a movie version is coming!

The film is currently shooting in Malta with a budget of $125 million. This is no low-budget effort, but the scope of the book demands that. Marc Foster is directing from a script by comic/screenwriter J. Michael Straczynski and Michael Carnahan.Brad Pitt stars as protagonist Gerry Lane.

Check out a couple of the images below, which show Pitt in scenes taking place in Israel. World War Z hits theatres some time next year.

  1. Hmmm... MIGHT be interesting, since I've heard great things about the book- and Brooks' "Zombie Survival Guide" was well done as well. My only problem is that I've found most modern "Hollywood" actors tend to overshadow the movie itself because of their names... and many don't do well in horrors.
