Getting an adaptation of Max Brooks’ milestone living dead tale World War Z to the big screen has proven trickier than expected. Still, things seem to finally be cookin’, and some possible new casting news has surfaced!
According to Bloody Disgusting Paramount Pictures is looking to cast Alicia Vikander (pictured right) in their big screen adaptation of World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War. While there are no offers out yet, she would land the role of “Segen” if the cards play out.
If signed, Vikander would join the previously announced Brad Pitt, Mireille Enos, and Anthony Mackie.
Marc Forster is directing the big-budget movie while Pitt and his Plan B shingle are producing. The novel is set 10 years after a global zombie epidemic and is an oral history told from many perspectives around the world. J. Michael Straczynski and Matt Carnahan wrote the script.
Pitt is playing a U.N. worker. Enos (“Big Love”, “The Killing”) will play his wife, a mother of two girls. The movie is scheduled to begin shooting in June in London, Malta, and other locales around the world.
