Damon Lindelof rewriting the end of Forster’s World War Z

June 11th, 2012 by Marc 1 Comment

We feared early on that Max Brooks’ zombie materpiece might be unfilmable and it looks like we may have been right.

We learned a while back that World War Z’s release date was shifted from Christmas 2012 to June 2013 and now that we hear Prometheus writer Damon Lindelof has been brought in for quite extensive re-writes, we understand why.
According to DarkHorizons, the resulting re-shoots will last several weeks and mostly focus on the last third of the story. The movie was finished shooting by director Marc Forster but it looks like the studio wasn’t happy. Brad Pitt, pictured above, stars in the movie.
Surely this is not a good sign?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
