The sequel to world war z which was never really in question, is now officially underway in pre production. Brad Pitt is set reprise his role as Gerry Lane in the upcoming sequel.
Director Marc Forster will not return for the sequel. Juan Antonio Bayona (The Orphanage, The Impossible) was originally going to direct, but left the project due to the strict schedule by the studio, which would have conflicted with another project he was working on, which leaves the film currently searching a new director.
Still in Pre-Production: current release date – June 9, 2017
Starring: Brad Pitt
Written by Steven Knight (Dirty Pretty Things, Eastern Promises).
We will update when more details are available.
