The “World War Z” movie might suck.
The novel charts a U.N. worker’s accounts of oral histories of a decade-long zombie war. The movie, according to bloggers who saw the press release, will take place as the zombie world war is breaking out when there is still time to stop it — completely different from the premise — and the timing — of the book.
There had been reports that this atypical monster tale would certainly be a challenge to put into film. Paramont’s seeming solution? As the AV Club sees it, “Make a typical zombie movie anyway.”
Movies.com quotes the press release as explaining the film this way: “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.”
