Though I didn’t like World War Z much, it was a huge hit so lots of people are no doubt looking forward the sequel. However, it seems that we’re going to have to wait a bit longer. Filming was set to begin this past January, with director David Fincher and Dennis Kelly having worked on a script rewrite, but that didn’t happen. And now, Paramount have further delayed production to accommodate star Brad Pitt, who has just signed on to co-star in Quentin Tarantino‘s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood alongside Leonardo DiCaprio. It’s unclear if the studio even had a choice in the matter being that Pitt is not just the star but also the main producer of World War Z 2.
So at the time of writing the film is due to begin shooting this autumn – but don’t bet on it.
