Looks like Z Day is finally coming.
According to Screen Daily, production on Marc Forster's long-awaited WORLD WAR Z will begin in Malta in late June before heading to the UK. Shooting in Hungary is scheduled to begin in early October.
The film will star Brad Pitt as a UN researcher conducting interviews with survivors of a global war between humans and zombies.
Anthony Mackie and Mireille Enos also (reportedly) star in the film.
The screenplay for WORLD WAR Z was penned by J. Michael Straczynski (THOR) and Matthew Michael Carnahan (THE KINGDOM). Pittís Plan B is producing with David Ellisonís Skydance Productions, while Paramount will distribute.
Screen Daily also reports that Paramount is planning to release the film in 2014, which seems a little far off if they're shooting this summer. Perhaps they meant 2013? In any event, the story of the zombie apocalypse will now be told...
