World War Z sequel starting with a 'clean slate' says writer Steven Knight
Even though WORLD WAR Z suffered from a lot of production issues that inevitably were made public, Marc Forster’s take on the Max Brook novel would eventually go on to box office success bringing in $540 million and securing itself a sequel. While there hasn’t been much in the way of news regarding the upcoming sequel since Steven Knight (LOCKE) signed on to write the script, he’s now come out and talked about the direction of the movie.
Knight told Indiewire about writing the WORLD WAR Z sequel:
"I thought, ‘why not? What fun.’ It’s not quite like the other, we’re starting with clean slate. When they’ve signed off we’re on."
As little information as that may sound, the prospect of a clean slate is definitely intriguing for this fan of the book and movie. He doesn’t confirm that he’s going to be sticking to the source material more than the predecessor, but a different direction still leaves that as a possibility. More details about the movie hopefully start to come through; WORLD WAR Z 2 is expected to go into production this October to make its way into theaters in 2016.
