It has been a rumor for more than half a year, but today it looks as if it is now a reality: Variety is reporting that David Fincher will direct WORLD WAR Z 2 , which would reunite him with old pal Brad Pitt.

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.

Friday the 13th and World War Z sequel pulled from Paramount's schedule

Here. We. Go. Again. I'll get right to it: Paramount Pictures has pulled the untitled WORLD WAR Z sequel and the FRIDAY THE 13th reboot from their 2017 release schedule. The former was a no-brainer: That film has held a June 9 date for a while now, but it doesn't even have a director, script, cast, etc., so I don't think anyone was expecting it to miraculously arrive at that...

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. Because of this, there probably aren't many who mind that the sequel Brad Pitt, Paramount Pictures, and Skydance Productions have been plotting isn't coming together very...

World War Z sequel lets go of director J.A. Bayona

Back in November , it was reported that Paramount had won out in a tug-of-war with Universal over director J.A. Bayona: Universal wanted the director of THE ORPHANAGE and THE IMPOSSIBLE to take the helm of their upcoming JURASSIC WORLD sequel, but Paramount had him locked into a holding deal to direct the sequel to WORLD WAR Z for them.

World War Z sequel holds on to director J.A. Bayona, adds new writer

After directing  JURASSIC WORLD to record-breaking success, Colin Trevorrow has opted not to return to helm the inevitable sequel, so Universal is searching for a replacement.

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. Instead, the movie ended up bringing in over $540 million worldwide, making it the highest-grossing zombie film ever....

World War Z 2 to start with a clean slate, shoot in October

Will WORLD WAR Z 2 be a completely different monster from the first movie? That could be the takeaway based on this interesting statement from the sequel's screenwriter Steven Knight (EASTERN PROMISES, LOCKE). In an interview with Thompson on Hollywood, the Oscar-nominated scribe explains why he took the gig and how it differs from Marc Forster's original: "I thought, 'why not?...
