James Badge Dale looking to join Brad Pitt in World War Z
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
I didn’t watch ’24’ and I don’t watch ‘Rubicon’, so the only major role I know James Badge Dale from is the HBO series THE PACIFIC, which he was one of the main stars. Oddly enough, in my review of the series, I complained that the biggest drawback to the series was James Badge Dale. So I can’t say I’m overly excited to report that he’s joining the film WORLD WAR Z. The Marc Forster (QUANTUM OF SOLACE) directed film is about post-apocalyptic life after a zombie outbreak. Brad Pitt will play a researcher trying to figure out why the outbreak occurred, Mireille Enos will play his wife, while Dale will play a soldier that tried to warn his superiors.
Dale seems to be gaining a decent following and has several projects lined up, so hopefully he can show me something more in Z than he did in THE PACIFIC. Either way, WORLD WAR Z is one of my more highly anticipated films of next year.
