World War Z, 2013 : Brad Pitt: Marc Forster

This film is an adaption of the novel by Max Brooks. It departs from the book. It becomes an action film with the hero against almost unbeatable odds theme that Hollywood is so fond of.

Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt) is an employee at the United Nations that goes over the world searching for a method to halt the rampant zombie attack. He must stop the annihilation of the world. Can't you almost hear an evil genius laughing about now? Except this is about zombies. Anyway...

Main Actors

  •  Brad Pitt
  • Matthew Fox
  • Mireille Enos
  • James Badge Dale

Marc Forster directed the film and  Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner,  Ian Bryce, and Jeremy Kleiner produced it. The screenplay was written by Damon Lindlof, Matthew Michael Carnahan, and Drew Goddard.

So a novel that  is written as an oral history about the zombie wars is turned into a fast action, horror, science fiction, thriller flick. Well, in depth thought is hard to portray on screen for long periods of time and keep the audiences attention. Can anyone say short attention span?
