World War Z hasn’t held up well. It was an okay action film that turned zombies in to insects, so while Brad Pitt has been pushing for a sequel, I have been hoping for the opposite. That all changes now! According to Variety David Fincher is close to signing a deal to direct the sequel. David Fincher is one of the greatest directors working. I mean if Alien 3 and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button are your worst films, you are pretty good, and if anyone can make World War Z work it would be him.
I guess Brad Pitt has been begging him to do it for quite a while now, and Fincher has finally given in. I just hope that he can bring something new to the very tired zombie action formula. A zombie thriller perhaps? Maybe there are threats of a new zombie outbreak and people are desperately trying to find its cause? Man that could be a good film. David if you are reading this drop me a line so we can talk story ideas, and don’t let Brad write it.
