Both Brad Pitt’s and Leonardo Dicaprio’s production company were trying to get rights for the film adaptation of Max Brooks' 2006 post-apocalyptic horror novel World War Z .
It is a follow-up to his 2003 book The Zombie Survival Guide. World War Z is a collection of individual accounts in the form of first-person anecdote.
Brad was the big winner back in 2007! At first we weren’t sure if Brad was going to star in the zombie flick, but Brooks got word that he will at Comic-Con this week.
They’ve snatched up Quantum of Solace director Marc Foster to help with the project.
They’re really excited about this project and hoping for a 2012 release.
