Mireille Enos Boasts Big for World War Z Adaptation
And the World War Z hype wheel keeps right on spinning. This time co-star Mireille Enos ("The Killing", "Big Love"), who plays the wife of Brad Pitt's character in the upcoming adaptation, sat down with E! Online and dropped some pretty interesting remarks about the film and the possibility of it being a trilogy.
"It was [going to be] from the beginning," says Enos of the plan to have two more films after this. "That was the hope, that if the first one turned out the way we all anticipate, that it would be great to turn it into a trilogy. It's exciting."
"It's like zombies are the new vampires. It's taking over. But somebody said to me this movie might end the zombie genre because, after this, what else is there to do? It's huge!"
End the sub-genre? Has nobody ever told her that you can't keep a good ghoul down? Especially with a PG-13 rating.
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.
Look for the Marc Forster-directed adaptation of the Max Brooks zombie infestation novel World War Z in theatres on December 21st, 2012.
