Exciting news for zombie movie fans out there, World War Z sequel might start shooting this October!

Next year’s movie lineup is the best one I?ve seen so far. We?ve got Captain America Civil War and?the debut of Stephen Strange in his standalone movie Doctor Strange to name a few. While Marvel has been busy the past couple of years, DC won?t just let them take the spotlight. ?They too have a few good movies up their sleeves. Superman vs Batman: Dawn of Justice will also be released next year along with Suicide Squad with no official date yet. However, one movie in particular will also release some time next year and it is the?World War Z sequel.

There?s a World War Z sequel next year?!

Apparently yes, Brad Pitt?s World War Z sequel will also be included in the lineup of awesome movies to watch next year, according to Screenrant.

Steven Knight revealed that he is penning the treatment for the movie?set to shoot in October for a 2016 release?if Paramount Pictures gives them the green light that is.

Knight told?indiewire ?I thought, ‘why not? What fun.’ It?s not quite like the other, we’re starting with clean slate. When they’ve signed off we’re on.?

Screenrant provided the following theory:

“Director Marc Forster?s World War Z movie deviated significantly from the structure and content of the source novel authored by Max Brooks:?an oral history of events that took place during the zombie pandemic, from its beginning to end. That was before the movie concluded on a note that left the door pretty wide open,?with respect to the possibilities for the sequel?s plot. Knight?s comment that he has a??clean slate??to work from?might be a reference to that.”

World War Z sequel Cast

The cast of WWZ sequel is still unknown but of course, Brad Pitt is going to be there, and he won?t miss it for the world.

As for the director, Screenrant noted that Juan Antonio Bayona is onboard to direct the sequel. The official title is still not yet revealed.

World War Z was a zombie survival thriller movie that starred Brad Pitt, Mireille Enos, Peter Capaldi as W.H.O. Doctor?I see what you did there?and James Badge Dale.?The movie was released on June 21, 2013.
