World War Z: An Oral History Of The Zombie War, will be made into a film by J. Michael Straczynski, the man responsible for the wildly acclaimed Babylon 5. He's well into the adaptation of the novel into a script, for Paramount Pictures, and already has a lead in mind. It's Brad Pitt.
The story of the zombie pandemic that led to the brink of destruction is a politically-charged satire, as well as being a story about zombies, World War Z might well be the kind of film that blows your mind while being a true joy to watch.
