World War Z sequel in the works

Second film on the way after strong box office performance

 
Looks like Brad Pitt hasn’t faced his last zombie, as Paramount is planning a sequel to World War Z after the film opened strongly with a $111.8 million worldwide take.
 
The film opened with a domestic haul of $66 million, a performance that looks to have convinced Paramount to press on with its burgeoning franchise.
 
Paramount Chairman Rob Moore has confirmed to THR that the studio is actively developing a second film, with Pitt thought to be keen to return to a project he both produced and starred in.

Read what Brad Pitt had to say about a World War Z sequel when we spoke to him at the film's London premiere.
 
Meanwhile, Monsters University enjoyed an even more profitable opening, romping to top spot in the box office chart with an estimated $82 million take.

It’s a figure that makes Monsters Univesity one of the biggest ever Pixar openings, second only to the $110 million earned by Toy Story 3 in 2010.

      Please no. It was the 'Brad Pitt is the ultimate hero show' and had no relation to the book, from what I remember. It was so boring.

      the film was OK, its definitely no relation to any other zombie films i have seen. There is no survival horror here folks, just fast paced action, story and strangely uplifting music for a zombie flick.

      I have always liked Brad Pitt, unlike Will Smith, he is not too big to do smaller, independent films like Moneyball, s****h or Killing them softly or play a supporting role. They should turn the next WWZ into a mini-series, but forward thinking is not Hollywoods strong suit.
