The Killing star in talks for movie

Marc Forster’s epic-sounding zombie epic World War Z is looking to add Mireille Enos to its cast list.

The actress has become something of an overnight sensation thanks to her role in AMC’s new series The Killing, in which she plays the show’s lead homicide detective.

World War Z already has Brad Pitt in place to star, and follows the fall-out from a zombie apocalypse as mercenaries, US government officials and Palestinians all attempt to survive.

Enos would play the part of Pitt’s wife, while Pitt himself is playing a U.N. worker. If Enos signs, it’ll be a serious boost to her already on-the-rise profile.

World War Z, based on the book by Max Brooks, is scheduled to begin filming this June across the globe, including shoots in London and Malta.
