Par and Pitt Tackle ‘Zombie War’


Variety is reporting that Brad Pitt’s Plan B production house and Paramount Pictures are in the works to adapt the Max Brooks novel “World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War” for the big screen.

The book was part of a studio battle in which Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way and Warner Bros. were also in the mix to attain the rights, but the story soon fell into Paramount’s hands.

The story is described as a sober telling of the aftermath of a war fought against a legion of humans who were inflicted with a virus, died and were reanimated into flesh-eating zombies.

The book will be published this fall by Crown.
