The zombie apocalypse shown in Max Brooks’ novel World War Z is shuffling ever closer to the big screen as we have our first casting announcement outside of star Bard Pitt’s long attachment.
Mireille Enos, star of AMC’s series The Killing, is in talks to star opposite Pitt in the upcoming film. She would be playing the wife of Pitt’s UN worker tasked with investigating the origins of an outbreak of zombies which swept around the world ten years earlier.
The film is set to begin production in June with shooting in London, Malta and other locations. Quantum Of Solace‘s Marc Forster is directing with Pitt’s Plan B production house producing.
