Brad Pitt On the Status of World War Z 2

Variety caught up to Brad Pitt at the Toronto International Film Festival and got some quotes from the man about World War Z 2.

Before the release of World War Z, Pitt hinted that the film could pave the way for a trilogy.  To date, the film has made over $500 million – not too shabby for a zombie epic that was receiving a lot of negative buzz based on the film’s production troubles.  

Needless to say, based on those numbers, a sequel is likely and Pitt seems hopeful one is going to happen.

The numbers are in and, as expected, Monsters University took the number one slot at the box office.  Still, World War Z made a nice chunk of money at number two.  

The Brad Pitt-starring PG-13 zombie film grossed an estimated $66 million this weekend.  The film is doing quite well overseas, too, bringing its worldwide gross to $112 million.
