With productions ramping up to start or already in the midst of shooting, casting announcements are pouring in for several upcoming movies.
With Brad Pitt headlining Paramount's adaptation of World War Z as a U.N. researcher, the Marc Forster-directed production has been adding cast members at a slow trickle, with Mireille Enos (AMC's The Killing) cast in April as Pitt's wife and James Badge Dale (HBO's The Pacific) recently added as a soldier looking to warn humanity about the zombie uprising. Finally, they're getting some company.
Deadline reports that Matthew Fox and Ed Harris are in talks to join the cast in unspecified roles. According to Bloody-Disgusting, Fox will play a part called "Parajumper," which, considering his lack of an actual name, doesn't sound like he makes it for long, but we could be wrong. No details on Harris' role have been revealed yet.
French actress Julia Levy-Boeken (Road Trip: Beer Pong) is also set to join the cast, and again, no details on her role have been given.
World War Z was based on on Max Brooks' best-selling novel and adapted by screenwriters Matthew Michael Carnahan (The Kingdom) and J. Michael Straczynski (Changeling). Production begins this month in London before moving to Glasgow, Scotland. Bale to sail on an ark, Kemper to teach chemistry >> Posted 06.14.11 by Ryan
