Paramount Confirms World War Z Sequel in the Works
With World War Z scoring big at the box office, earning a very respectable $66 million in North America and $45.8 million from its first 25 foreign markets, Paramount is celebrating its victory by planning more!
THR reports that World War Z initially was envisioned as a trilogy, but those plans were shelved when the movie ran into trouble, requiring extensive reworking of the last act. Initially set to open in December 2012, the movie's release date was pushed back to June, prompting many in Hollywood to anticipate a blood bath. Given the bank the film is currently making, Paramount has revived plans for a sequel, proving yet again that the undead are truly unstoppable.
