There are few actors working in the business today that we respect and admire more than “Breaking Bad”‘s Bryan Cranston. This guy can effortlessly deliver chilling at the flip of a switch and has won us over wholeheartedly. The prospect of him killing zombies? Please, lord, make it so!

Bryan CranstonAccording to THR Cranston (pictured right) is in negotiations to join Paramount’s World War Z, a post-apocalyptic thriller starring Brad Pitt. The role is said to be small but flashy; little is known about the part.

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.

Marc Forster directs. J. Michael Straczynski and Matt Carnahan wrote the script.

The good folks over at Splash News have landed themselves some paparazzi shots from the set of World War Z. Dig on one of them below and hit up that link for more.

“Feeling the pinch of a cold British summer morning, Brad appeared wrapped up on board the yellow SD Salmoor where most of the filming is taking place. The admiralty salvage vessel was covered in wax and fake icicles plus a hoard of locals that were signed up as extras. The crew set sail to a nearby location and returned banging weapons and hollering for the camera.”

    I love Bryan Cranston. I hope his part is a good one.

    Maybe Brad Pitt will get hit by a bus and Cranston will have to step in to take over his role.

    Or possibly Pitt will discover he has terminal cancer and Cranston will step in to take the role.

    Or Pitt will be filming a scene with a prop gun that is actually loaded with real bullets, he will end up shooting himself in the head and Cranston will step in to take the role.

    Hey, a man can hope.

    • The Woman In Black

      Dude, what is your beef with Pitt? Have you never seen Se7en? Fight Club? Snatch? Kalifornia? Inglourious Basterds? Even his bit part in True Romance is memorable. The guy can act, and the better his material, the better his performance. WWZ should be awesome! Mark my words. 🙂

      • The Buz

        Yeah man, Pitt’s a great actor.

        • Vanvance1

          He’s a popular actor. Popular does not mean good, it merely means he is in the media often, usually for all the wrong reasons.

          His body of work displays a distinct lack of range and my personal feeling is he takes away from every movie he is in. In other words it may still be a great movie (i.e. Fight Club) but would have been even better with another actor in his role.
