Paramount plots World War Z sequel

Jun 24 2013, 10:30am CDT | by

Paramount is developing a 'World War Z' sequel.

The movie studio is reportedly set to produce a sequel to the zombie thriller starring Brad Pitt after it took over $118.8 million at the worldwide box office during its opening week, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Paramount vice chairman Rob Moore confirmed the studio will ''actively turn to developing a sequel.''

Moore also praised the film's star and producer with promoting the movie extensively.

He said: ''The great thing about this process was that it showed what a great partner and producer Brad is. He made a true commitment.''

Pitt - who plays main character Gerry Lane - is also confident the first movie can lead to a franchise because there is much more to explore in the cinematic zombie world.

He previously said: ''It's set up for many sequels because the book is so dense with information and historical references, and it's an international story.

''There are so many things we could do with this - if it works. But we need this one to work - which we think it does.''

The actor helped market the film by surprising fans at screenings around the world and has jetted across the globe to attend various premieres for the movie.

Even still, Jake Gyllenhaal and everyone behind Nightcrawler has to be pleased. The thriller that earned major critical raves (check out our Nightcrawler re ...

Brad Pitt Squirms ‘Between Two Ferns’

Oct 23 2014 9:59am CDT | Source: Deadline

Brad Pitt, out promoting The Fury, is the latest celeb to suffer interviewer Zach Galifianakis in his Funny Or Die interview series Two Ferns. This series seems to have been borne out of that wonderful skit done by the late Chris Farley, where he interviewed the likes of Martin Scorsese and Paul McCartney on Saturday Night Live. That skit worked because he was such a self deprecating lovable bumbler–strangely, he channeled the worst suspicions of every ...

Following his Oscar-winning score last year for Gravity, acclaimed British film and television composer Steven Price scores Fury, director David Ayer’s gritty WWII epic starring Brad Pitt as a battle-hardened sergeant who commands a Sherman tank and its five-man crew on a perilous mission behind enemy lines.  Ayer’s dedication to the accuracy of the film’s portrayal of war as the Allies make their final push into the European Theater inspired Price to give the film’s score a raw, guttural fee ...
