World War Z 2 Hires A Writer
By Drax Largo on May 28th, 2014
Paramount has hired screenwriter Steven Knight (Locke, Eastern Promises) to pen the initial drafts of World War Z 2.
J.A. Bayona (Penny Dreadful, The Orphanage) will direct, while Brad Pitt will return to reprise his role as U.N. employee Gerry Lane. No word, however, on the possibility of any more cast members returning from the first outing.
Naturally, story details are slim to none at the moment, but Pitt will once again produce alongside Jeremy Kleiner and Dede Gardner for his Plan B prodco.
As for Knight, he recently directed Tom Hardy in Locke,which is generating very positive buzz in his native UK.
