Brad Pitt confirms talks over World War Z sequel

“We have so many ideas on the table”

World War Z was one of the surprise hits of the summer, overcoming a troubled production process to bring home an impressive global haul of $536 million.

Naturally, talk has since turned to the proposition of a sequel, with Brad Pitt now confirming that discussions are afoot over how to make that a reality.

“We're certainly talking about it, yeah,” says Pitt of a potential sequel. “We have so many ideas on the table from just the time we spent developing this thing and figuring out how zombie worlds work.”

“We have so many ideas and so much information, we think we have a lot of stuff to mine from. We're going to do our best and see what we get out of it. We gotta get the script right first to determine if we go further.”

Co-star Mireille Enos is also keen on a return, echoing Pitt’s sentiments regarding the script. “We’ll wait and see how the script turns out,” said Enos, “but yes, I’d love to come back.”

      The first one was poor - shame because with a bit more style (dispense with the opening title sequence and redundant opening family scene and kick straight into them in the car - then when the chaos kicks off and he looks back to see the guy turn into a zombie, do a freeze frame with the title in red flying up on the screen as it roars at the camera.) it could have been something. Needed more blood too (zombie film with no gore??) so not sure what the point in a sequel would be. What would it be called? World War ZZ? Add a few more Z's on there and you pretty much sum up the first one (have to admit I dosed off a bit - had a dream he somehow survived a plane crash in Wales by landing in a tree..)

      I saw it last night and i too was pleasantly surprised. it wasn't a zombie film so much as a disaster film, i liked the opening sequence cos it reminded me of the opening sequence of I Am Legend which was awesome up until the CG zombies
