Producer updates on World War Z 2, hopes Fincher will direct

It's already been almost four years since the release of WORLD WAR Z, a somewhat troubled movie that used the novel by Max Brooks as a source of inspiration but wasn't the adaptation many fans of the book would have liked to see. There are varying opinions on how the film turned out (we have a 5/10 review from Chris Bumbray and a 7/10 review from The Arrow in our archives),...

David Fincher is creatively interested in directing World War Z 2

The current iteration of Paramount Pictures has turned out to be a confusing studio when it comes to their horror projects.

David Fincher is in talks to direct the World War Z sequel

Although a massive box office hit, the 2013 zombie epic WORLD WAR Z , which starred Brad Pitt and was loosely based on the novel by Max Brooks, wasn't exactly warmly embraced by the horror community.

World War Z 2 set for release on June 9, 2017

A $190 million production that famously brought in new writers during post to craft an entirely different third act which required seven weeks of additional shooting, the adaptation of Max Brook's novel WORLD WAR Z could have been a disaster for Paramount Pictures.

Cool Horror Videos: Se7en featurette from 1995 with David Fincher

As David Fincher's awesome GONE GIRL is coming out in theaters today (do I really need to tell you to go see it?), I thought this would be a good opportunity to travel back in time a bit - well, almost 20 years - and take a look at movie that put the man on the map. I'm talking about SE7EN , of course. Yes, I know ALIEN 3 came first, but let's be honest here: if he had never directed...
