Unsurprisingly, The World War Z Sequel Will Need A New Director

brad-pitt-faces-off-against-zombies-in-the-first-world-war-z-trailerIn a report on Brad Pitt‘s Plan B Productions, The Hollywood Reporter toss out a reference to the World War Z sequel that’s in the early stages of development. They say:

director Marc Forster won’t be back.

Later in the same piece they kick around some rumours that had bobbed up during production, including a story that Pitt and Forster got to the point during production that they stopped talking to one another.

This, however was disputed by Damon Lindelof who talked about the time he spent on reworking the film:

The idea they were not speaking was not my experience. And more importantly, the way Brad talked about Marc and Marc talked about Brad was entirely respectable, as if they were both creative partners trying to fix a problem.

I think World War Z ended up, against all expectations, being the most satisfying of Forster’s films to date. It’s going to be a tough story to sequelise, though. I hope Pitt and co. get the right idea.

And I hope they get it first time, next time.
