WORLD WAR Z SEQUEL GETS DIRECTOR





world war z

Though no writers are attached as yet, Paramount and Skydance Pictures have been fast tracking the sequel to World War Z which, despite having its entire third act reshot [they should have reshot the rest while they were at it] and ending up as a total mess of a film in my opinion [I know that HCF’s usual news maestro Matt Wavish will disagree with my views on this movie!], performed well above expectations with a worldwide gross of $540 million, which means more PG-13 zombie movies. Yay!* We can now tell you that Juan Antonia Bayona has come on board to direct the sequel. With The Impossible [which shows he’s good at large-scale cataclysmic events], and The Orphanage [which shows he can create strong suspense and can scare an audience] to his credit, he’s a good choice. Unlike Marc Forster, who made the worst James Bond film ever.

Brad Pitt is not only expected to return to his role of a former United Nations employee  but will also probably co-produce.

About Dr Lenera 3141 Articles
I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
