World War Z hungers for another seven weeks of shooting

Yikes! Production on Marc Forster's WORLD WAR Z doesn't seem to be going as smoothly as we'd like - earlier this year, we brought you the disappointing news of the film's release being pushed back a whole six months and now it seems that the flick might have an even longer and bumpier road into theaters. As reported by Daily Mail, Brad Pitt has joined the rest of the cast on set in Budapest for an additional seven weeks of reshoots. Wow. Seven weeks? They could probably shoot an entire new movie in that time. That being said, reasons for the additional shooting time are not known at this point. Hopefully, we'll hear some reassuring words from the cast and crew in the coming weeks.

The story revolves around United Nations employee Gerry Lane, who traverses the world in a race against time to stop the Zombie pandemic that is toppling armies and governments and threatening to decimate humanity itself.

WORLD WAR Z stars Brad Pitt, Mireille Enos (below), Matthew Fox, Elyes Gabel, David Morse and James Badge Dale. The film is still planned for a June 21, 2013 release.

Extra Tidbit: Can you think of any movies that were stuck in development hell and ultimately turned out alright anyway?

Maybe it's for gore/violence to make it an R? True gore and violence do not simply mean a better movie however it's hard to imagine a zombie war movie that doesn't have them. Either way I'm not too worried about the additional shooting. Sure for every time a movie goes through additional shooting or reshooting there's pretty much a story for the better to match one for the worse. Same could be said for movies that don't get reshoots/additional at all. They have plenty of time to fix whatever

Predator

Predator actually shut down about 2 thirds of the way through, I think due to the crummy looking original creature design. The director, John Mctiernan, actually said it made the movie better because once he had 2/3 of it cut together the studio gave him more money to finish it. So the last third where Arnold has the showdown actually has more of a budget than the first 2/3. Mcteirnan explained it on the BluRay and said he wished he could make all movies that way.

Blade Runner

The Blade Runner set was infamously bad and look what we got... 26.5 versions of a fantastic movie.
