World War Z
Just in case there aren't enough book-to-screen adaptations for us to keep track of already, news of another came today: Damn Nation, which was published by Dark Horse Comics in 2005. It was written by Andrew Cosby with artwork by Jason Shawn Alexander.
If you're anything like me, and my condolences if you are, then you are eagerly anticipating the film adaptation of Max Brook's zombie novel World War Z. Recently there's been little news regarding it, but finally some has begun to trickle out.
Anyone who’s read Max Brooks’ World War Z should know the significance of the Battle of Yonkers. It’s a turning point in the story of man's war against the zombies and one sequence that will make or break the upcoming film when all is said and done.
The hope, screenwriter J. Michael Straczynski told MTV’s Movies Blog, is to start production on World War Z by the first of the year. That’s a pretty quick turnaround since he’s still polishing the script based on director Marc Forster’s notes.
Just the other day it was announced that the adaptation for Max Brooks’ amazing post-zombie apocalypse novel, World War Z, finally had a director in the form of Quantum of Solace helmer Marc Forster. The freaks at Fango then swooped in to talk to the author about the developments, all of which he seems very happy with.
At Fear Fest last weekend I finally got the chance to tell author Max Brooks to his face how much I loved World War Z, and he seemed appreciative. Seriously, if you haven’t read this book yet, stop whatever you’re doing and rectify that immediately. It’s just a flat-out fantastic novel.
We just got some text messages in from Nomad who is attending the San Diego Comic-Con. Zombie fans ... get happy!
Word come down from last weekend New York Comic Con (via IGN) that "Babylon 5" co-creator Michael will be writing the screenplay adaptation of Max Brook’s very well-received zombie book World War Z (review).
We've been tipped off today by a reader that Max Brooks' new book is getting some lovin' from Borders .
