Matthew Fox and Ed Harris join Brad Pitt in World War Z

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant

I’m pleased to see all of these casting announcements for WORLD WAR Z, because to be honest, I was afraid that Max Brooks’ novel was never going to make it to the big screen.  It seems Brad Pitt has been attached to star for a while, but the film has been through so many ups and downs with the financing that I was starting to lose hope.  But the film just added Matthew Fox, Ed Harris and French actress Julia Levy-Boeken to the cast that already included Pitt, Mireille Enos and the recently announced James Badge Dale.  Marc Forster (QUANTUM OF SOLACE) is directing from a script by Matthew Michael Carnahan and J. Michael Straczynski.

The book is about a post-apocalyptic world that has been wiped out by a zombie outbreak.  And yes, I know that’s essentially what the great TV show ‘Walking Dead’ is about, but Z takes on more epic proportions.  The budget is slated to be around $128 million, so let’s hope they get their money’s worth.
