In March, Paramount Pictures delayed its adaptation of World War Z until 2013, pushing the movie from a crowded 2012 holiday season to a more tentpole-friendly summer season. While delays are often viewed as a red flag of trouble, the move could have been looked at as a promotion, since summer seemed like a better position for a global zombie thriller than the holidays. But with news now of extensive reshoots on the horizon, it's hard to feel confident about the adaptation of Max Brooks' best-selling novel.
The Daily Mail reports that seven weeks of additional shooting will take place, starting in Budapest, where Pitt will be on hand. It's unknown, though, whether Mireille Enos (The Killing), who plays Pitt's wife in the movie, or co-stars Matthew Fox (Lost) and James Badge Dale (The Departed) will be used in the reshoots. In fact, no details have been offered, though with seven weeks of work lined up, there is probably too much being shot to be discussed. more about the reshoots >> Posted 06.04.12 by Ryan
