Brad Pitt and Mireille Enos Confirm Possible World War Z Trilogy
Posted 01.26.12 by Ryan
Earlier this month, a report claimed that director Marc Forster (Quantum of Solace) and Paramount Pictures were planning a trilogy for their adaptation of World War Z that mixed the "grounded, gun-metal realism" of the Bourne movies with the "unsettling end-times vibe" of AMC's The Walking Dead. The news was welcomed by fans who'd been wondering how screenwriter Matthew Michael Carnahan was going to adapt Max Brooks' detail-rich source material into a single movie.
Mireille Enos (The Killing), who is cast as the wife of Brad Pitt's U.N. Employee Gerry Lane, recently confirmed the report, telling E! Online at the Golden Globes that the plan has always been to turn World War Z into a trilogy.
It was [going to be] from the beginning. That was the hope, that if the first one turned out the way we all anticipate, that it would be great to turn it into a trilogy. It's exciting.
Pitt seems to agree, as he recently also told E! Online (at the Palm Springs International Film Festival) that a trilogy could happen if the movie finds success.
If the first one works, it will be a trilogy. If the first one doesn't work, it won't be a trilogy.
Fans are hoping the "first one works" as well, that way all of their "must-have" scenes will have a chance to make it into a movie.
