Probably the biggest horror story of the week has just been broken on Day One of the San Diego Comic-Con! That's right, kids! You read that headline correctly!
It's been a long road for the big screen adaptation of the best selling Max Brooks novel World War Z, but finally there's a little bit of movement to speak of. Not much, mind you, but at least we know that the ball is still rolling.
If you're anything like me, and my condolences if you are, then you are eagerly anticipating the film adaptation of Max Brook's zombie novel World War Z. Recently there's been little news regarding it, but finally some has begun to trickle out.
Anyone who’s read Max Brooks’ World War Z should know the significance of the Battle of Yonkers. It’s a turning point in the story of man's war against the zombies and one sequence that will make or break the upcoming film when all is said and done.
The hope, screenwriter J. Michael Straczynski told MTV’s Movies Blog, is to start production on World War Z by the first of the year. That’s a pretty quick turnaround since he’s still polishing the script based on director Marc Forster’s notes.
Just the other day it was announced that the adaptation for Max Brooks’ amazing post-zombie apocalypse novel, World War Z, finally had a director in the form of Quantum of Solace helmer Marc Forster. The freaks at Fango then swooped in to talk to the author about the developments, all of which he seems very happy with.
At Fear Fest last weekend I finally got the chance to tell author Max Brooks to his face how much I loved World War Z, and he seemed appreciative. Seriously, if you haven’t read this book yet, stop whatever you’re doing and rectify that immediately. It’s just a flat-out fantastic novel.
