Of all the troublesome things we’ve heard about the shoot of World War Z, this is by far the most loony, and we’re talking about a production that had its weapons seized by the government! Read on for the latest.

THR reports that when it comes to the World War Z reshoots, writer Damon Lindelof was brought in to do a third act, but after figuring out how much additional work was needed, he handed the project off to collaborator Drew Goddard. Sources say Paramount execs only had 52 minutes of continuous footage cut together to show them, along with a few minutes of other action. The film is said to be gearing up for a seven-week reshoot in London.

Interesting. Stay tuned.

    an upcoming shit storm over the horizon

    Holy crap, whether they pull this out the fire or not; this is going to go down as one of the most troubled productions in Hollywood history.

    Each time a WWZ story comes out; I’m reminded of Steven Bach’s book “Final Cut: The Making and Unmaking of Heaven’s Gate.” On that film they had a few options: 1. Cleopatra – throw money into it and let it go where it goes and pray 2. Queen Kelly – shut down production, eat the loses and settle any lawsuits 3. Apocalypse Now – reign in costs and schedule; then hopefully a remarkable film will emerge.

    Sounds like Paramount is going with the Cleopatra option; can only hope it works for them.

    The book houses what could be an epic ten part television miniseries and they only have fifty two minutes of footage?! Man this movie sounds less and less appealing to me every time I read about it.
