Paramount Pictures has released the first teaser poster from the highly anticipated and much delayed Marc Forster (Quantum of Solace) zombie thriller World War Z:
The film starring Brad Pitt (Fight Club) is based on Max Brooks’ best-selling novel World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War and revolves around United Nations employee Gerry Lane (Pitt), who travels the world in a race against time to stop a Zombie pandemic from spreading and ultimately destroying the world as we know it. The film also stars Mireille Enos (The Killing), who plays Gerry’s wife Karen Lane, as well as James Badge Dale (The Departed), Matthew Fox (Lost) and David Morse (The Green Mile).
World War Z has been dogged with issues with several writers brought on board for script rewrites, so Matthew Michael Carnahan (Lion for Lambs) and Damon Lindelof (Lost) both share writing credits. The zombie thriller was originally set for a December 2012 release, however the production suffered some setbacks with several weeks of reshoots needed, so the film is now due for release in the U.S on June 21 , 2013.
Hopefully it will be worth the wait and as a further treat Paramount has promised a full trailer will be released this Thursday, so stay tuned.
