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He previously said: ''It's set up for many sequels because the book is so dense with information and historical references, and it's an international story.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

‘Nightcrawler’ Moves to Halloween, Legendary’s ‘Krampus’ Gets Fall 2015 Date

Aug 19 2014 5:30pm CDT | Source: Slash Film

When one film moves around on the calendar, others often follow suit. Recently David Ayer’s Fury was pulled up from a November 2014 opening to a mid-October date, the better to (hopefully) enjoy a long awards season runup. That put it directly in competition with Nightcrawler, the indie thriller starring Jake Gyllenhaal. Now Nightcrawler has backed off a couple weeks to put room between the two releases. In addition to the Nightcrawler Halloween date, there’s news about U ...
