Brad Pitt to Star in Zombie Movie World War Z 2010-07-22 08:45:35

Brad Pitt the Zombie Slayer

Forget vampires, because the up-and-coming zombie trend has just gotten a stamp of approval from none other than Brad Pitt. At Comic-Con this morning, MTV confirmed that Pitt is set to star in World War Z, an adaptation of Max Brooks's novel about a zombie apocalypse. If all goes according to plan, Pitt could have a full franchise on his hands.

The film, which will be directed by Marc Forster (Quantum of Solace), is told through "first hand accounts" of those who survived a vicious worldwide onslaught of zombies. I'm assuming Pitt will play one of the survivors and not one of the zombies, and the film is slated for a Summer 2012 release — so don't get too excited just yet.

Pitt is set to appear on the Comic-Con panel for MegaMind in just a few hours, so be sure to keep checking in and following me on Twitter for all the latest updates!

I've been waiting for them to get the show on the road with this film adaptation FOREVER! Brad Pitt's production company actually bought the film rights a few years ago, so a lot of people speculated that he would play a main role - no surprises there. And, not to be picky, but it's not a graphic novel, unless there is a new version I'm not aware of :) Either way, it's a perfect book to make into a movie - best zombie fiction out there!
