‘World War Z’ Sequel to Start With ‘Clean Slate’

In an interview with Thompson on Hollywood, writer-director Steven Knight spoke briefly about his plans for the upcoming World War Z sequel.

Knight, who’s writing the treatment for the sequel, revealed the film will start fresh: “I thought, ‘why not? What fun.’ It’s not quite like the other, we’re starting with clean slate.”

World War Z is adapted from a novel by Max Brooks with the same title. Although fiction, the novel collects a first hand “testimony” from multiple survivors of the Zombie War, which easily opens the film up to the clean-slate approach Knight mentioned.

Director Marc Forster’s 2013 adaptation, which starred Brad Pitt, was a box-office hit, grossing more than $540 million worldwide. However, critical reception was mixed

The untitled sequel, which begins shooting in October, is scheduled for a 2016 release.
