Forster To Document WORLD WAR Z

Posted on 14 November 2008 by Rich Drees

Marc Forster, whose Bond installment Quantum Of Solace opens in theaters today, has been hired by Brad Pitt’s production company Plan B to direct their adaptation of the Max Brooks zombie apocalypse novel World War Z.

Brooks’ book is a faux collection of government reports and eyewitness accounts from survivors of a world wide zombie plague. The adaptation was written by Changeling-screenwriter J. Michael Straczynski, which Brooks found “really cool” as he is a fan of Straczynski’s classic science-fiction television series Babylon 5. To join the various narratives in the film together, Straczynski’s script utilizes a government official character who is slowly compiling the documents and stories featured in the book.

No cast is currently attached to the project.
