In what can only be seen as good news for those of us who are anticipating director Marc Forster’s take on Max Brooks’ novel World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War, three foreign locations are being prepped for production with an eye towards a June, 2011 start date.
According to Screen Daily shooting will begin in Malta with production moving to the UK and Hungary in that order. Principal photography is expected to last well into the fall months.
The novel is set 10 years after a global zombie epidemic and is an oral history told from many perspectives around the world. Brad Pitt is playing a U.N. worker gathering stories of the great zombie war, and his Plan B shingle is producing. Mireille Enos (“Big Love”, “The Killing”) will play his wife, a mother of two girls, and Anthony Mackie co-stars. J. Michael Straczynski and Matt Carnahan wrote the script.
Now that filming is just about under way, look for more soon!
