The zombie flick World War Z starring Brad Pitt was one of my most anticipated movies of 2012 . . . until it was pushed back from December 21st, 2012 to June 21, 2013. The film was initially pushed back for re-writes after the studio was unhappy with the finished product. Damion Lindelof was working on the re-writes, but now Deadline is reporting that Drew Goddard has done a majority of the writing, including a new ending from a concept originally developed by Lindelof. Got it? Goddard directed The Cabin in the Woods and wrote Cloverfield and Robopocalypse for Steven Spielberg. A date has not been set for the re-shoots, but directer Marc Forster will return to complete the film. Although re-shoots are nothing new in Hollywood, the continued complications to a big budget production make you wonder if this one is doomed.
Synopsis: “The story revolves around United Nations employee Gerry Lane (Pitt), who traverses the world in a race against time to stop the Zombie pandemic that is toppling armies and governments and threatening to decimate humanity itself.”
