Brad Pitt has spoken with Variety about the likelihood of a World War Z sequel. At the Toronto International Film Festival, while promoting his new film 12 Years A Slave, Pitt stated, “We’re certainly talking about it, yes…We have so many ideas on the table from the time we spent developing this thing and figuring out how the zombie worlds work…We gotta get the script right first to determine if we go further…We have so many ideas and so much information–we think we have a lot of stuff to mine from.”
Expectations were mixed prior to the release of World War Z. The film’s budget was blown out to nearly $200 million for a complete rewrite and reshoot of the third act. Luckily, the extra work paid off. World War Z earned a massive $533 million at the worldwide box-office, making it one of the highest grossing films of 2013, as well as Brad Pitt’s most successful film.
The original plan was for World War Z to spark a three-part franchise. Paramount is now looking at Plan B Entertainment, Brad Pitt’s production company, to repeat its initial success of World War Z.
