World War Z is an upcoming post-apocalyptic horror film directed by Marc Forster and written by Matthew Michael Carnahan. It is based on the novel of the same name by Max Brooks. Courtesy Wikipedia.

I strongly recommend reading World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War before this flick comes out; it is by far the best zombie fiction written (an I’ve read a ton of it), in my humble opinion ofcourse. Can Pitt and $125 million budget pull it off? I hope so, this thing can go two ways, absolute shit or amazing adaptation, hopefully its the latter. Can’t wait for this. Check out the trailer, read the book and prepare for the hordes! WWZ @ IMDb.
