New Set Videos and Photos from World War Z Reveal Crashes and Zombies
Posted 08.24.11 by Ryan
Last week, the production for Paramount Pictures' adaptation of World War Z moved to Glasgow, Scotland, where set photos revealed that a section if the city was transformed into Philadelphia for a two-week shoot. As shooting has continued, even more set photos have been revealed by HugAZombie.
The new batch of photos reveals an action-packed crash scene that had extras running through the streets, as well as more of how Glasgow is being changed to look like an American city. There's also a glimpse of the life-like, plastic zombie dummies — the first look at what director Marc Forster (Quantum of Solace) has in mind for the movie.
Actors Brad Pitt and Mireille Enos (The Killing) were also revealed in the set photos, as the on-screen couple shot a scene inside a camper van in Grangemouth, Scotland.
New videos show the mayhem that happens after a truck crashes through several different cars and shows extras racing for their lives. They also have a brief, bird's-eye view of the truck crashing scene. Check out both below.
Set photos have been fans only way to learn more about the secretive production, and some previous set photos confirmed that Lost actor Matthew Fox had indeed joined the cast.
Based on the best-selling novel by Max Brooks, World War Z was adapted by Matthew Michael Carnahan (The Kingdom) and what he's done turning the book into a movie may not make every fan happy. While Brooks' novel takes place years after the zombie outbreak, a recent plot synopsis for the movie revealed that Pitt will travel "the world in a race against time to stop the Zombie pandemic." No official footage for the movie has been released, so we'll reserve judgement until then.
The cast of World War Z includes James Badge Dale (The Departed), Elyes Gabel (HBO's Game of Thrones), and Danielle Kertesz in her debut role. Bryan Cranston was recently cast in a role that was described as "small but flashy."
