According to The Hollywood Reporter, a sequel to World Wars Z is in the works at Paramount with Utopia creator Dennis Kelly writing a new draft. Apparently, there was some concern that director J.A. Bayona might move on to direct the Jurassic World sequel, but sources told THR, “there was little Bayona could do given that […]
It's the first part of a trilogy so this is a potential franchise launcher.
I think World War Z ended up, against all expectations, being the most satisfying of Marc Forster's films to date. It's going to be a tough story to sequelise, though.
Today's modern zombie is a faster, fitter corpse than the shambling undead brainmuncher of yesteryear. Michael Moran reports from the world of the jumping ghoul.
The first few shots of this World War Z clip play out with such interesting sound that it's something of a shame when the music kicks in.
Also includes a digital copy of the film - just not quite yet. Are you tempted?
Here's another full-on smooch in Hollywood and the Chinese film industry's increasingly hot and heavy romance.
The second full trailer for World War Z has been released in high quality, fully downloadable in HD and all proper-shiny.
They're like a pile of creepy crawlies. Just bigger. And more dangerous to helicopters.
Apple are promising an exclusive premiere of the World War Z trailer on Monday. They might want to have a word with YouTube about that - copies of the thing are popping up like CG zombies.
How many zombies do you think they'll be able to squeeze into just 30 seconds?
It's borderline biblical as the zombie hordes reach critical mass.

I don’t know what’s up with World War Z but I must admit that I’ve been sceptical about this project from day one. First of all, there was the appointment of director Marc Forster who has shown no facility with films in this genre and, with Quantum of Solace and Machine Gun Preacher as examples, […]
Marc Forster‘s directorial career has stretched from the lo-fi melodrama of Everything Put Together and Monsters Ball, through the visual contrivance of Stay and conceptual contrivance of Stranger Than Fiction, then on to lumbering studio pictures like The Kite Runner and Quantum of Solace. At the moment, he’s currently shooting World War Z (in the […]
Every work from one medium must undergo a process of adaptation as it steps into another. It’s a popular delusion that “the book is always better than the film,” but I just don’t buy it. The book’s not a film, for one thing. But look at The Shining. Stand By Me. Misery. Carrie. Probably something […]
Marc Forster‘s film of World War Z appears to be on the absolute tip of the cusp of the verge of crossing the line and entering production. Right as we speak, the film’s cinematographer is busy prepping at one of London’s big film studios. The DP in question is Robert Richardson, who recently wrapped Martin […]
