Damon Lindleloff to rewrite World War Z amongst some major reshoots

1 min read

Things aren’t looking too good for the massive Zombie film, World War Z. Even though principal ohotgraphy wrapped up earlier, it’s clear that something is massively wrong with the film, as the cast and crew have been recalled for an additional seven weeks of shooting.

With the script being an apparent issue here, Damon “cryptic bastard” Lindelof has been hired to help get the story back in shape for the reshoots, things are most definitely pointing so some sort of lacklustre story so far.

According to THR, Lindelof will be rewriting whole chunks of the script, with a focus on the third act, before World War Z starts shooting again in August/September.

Based on the Max Brooks oral history novel, World War Z details the mother of all Zombie outbreaks, and stars Brad Pitt, Mireille Enos, Daniella Kertesz, James Badge Dale, with Marc Foster directing both gigs.

WWZ was originally scheduled for a December release, before being pushed back to June next year. Let’s hope that the current six month delay helps do the book justice, when WWZ eventually hits the screens.
