In 2018, producer Dede Gardner said the the film would start shooting in June, so this would mean that World War Z 2 might be ahead of schedule. This is good news for the film, which has had its production continually pushed back by Paramount.
World War Z 2 has had years of development woes and lost director J.A. Bayona (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom) in 2016. Zodiac director David Fincher will replace Bayona, and it's said his film may draw more from the book than the first movie.
Loosely based on the book by Max Brooks chronicling the aftermath of a zombie-plague outbreak, World War Z ditched much of the complex narrative structure of Brooks' book, considered unfilmable, for a more streamlined international thriller. World War Z stars Brad Pitt as a former UN investigator who has to race against the clock to find a solution to the worldwide zombie pandemic.
No release date has been announced for World War Z 2.
