World War Z Set Photos and Bryan Cranston Joins

ON

Splash News has posted these photos from the set of World War Z. Brad Pitt has been filming the zombie thriller in the seaside town of Falmouth in Cornwall, UK. The site says:

Feeling the pinch of a cold British summer morning, Brad appeared wrapped up on board the yellow SD Salmoor where most of the filming is taking place. The admiralty salvage vessel was covered in wax and fake icicles plus a hoard of locals that were signed up as extras. The crew set sail to a nearby location and returned banging weapons and hollering for the camera.

In related news, The Hollywood Reporter says that Bryan Cranston (“Breaking Bad”) has been cast in a “small but flashy” role in the Marc Forster-directed film.

The summer 2012 release is based on Max Brooks’ best-selling novel about a worldwide infestation of flesh-eating zombies. Brooks, the son of Mel Brooks and Anne Bancroft, wrote a detailed tale in which a researcher for the U.N. Postwar Commission interviews survivors from countries all over the world, 10 years after the crisis, to gather a first-person post-mortem on a war that obliterated every country on the map.
