James Badge Dale in Negotiations to Face the Living Dead in World War Z
And the news week finally winds down with some possible casting news for director Marc Forster's take on Max Brooks' novel World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War. So who may be next for active duty?
According to Variety The Grey's James Badge Dale (pictured right) is going back into battle, albeit against an already-dead enemy. Dale is in negotiations to join Brad Pitt in Paramount's World War Z, set 10 years after a global zombie epidemic. If signed, Dale will play an American soldier who tries to alert authorities that the zombie threat is real. Paramount had no comment on the casting.
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.
Look for more soon!
