ZOMBIES Seeing the Light

The adaptation of Max Brooks’ World War Z (Crown, 2006) has been in the works for a long time, hampered by a $125 million production budget. With new financing, production has begun and  filming will begin in August in Glasgow, Scotland, which is being transformed into a Zombie war-torn Philadelphia. Brad Pitt is starring, along with Mireille Enos and James Badge Dale. In talks to join the cast are Ed Harris and Matthew Fox. The director is Marc Foster.

Pitt also stars in Moneyball, based on the book about major league baseball by Michael Lewis (Norton, 2003; tie-in edition, 9780393338393), to be released 9/23 this year. He just finished filming  Cogan’s Trade, based on the novel by George V. Higgins, (Knopf, 2004), to be released some time next year.
