World War Z is based on a popular novel by Max Brooks (The Zombie Survival Guide) who shares screenwriting credits with Matthew Michael Carnahan and J. Michael Straczynski. The film is being directed by Marc Forster (Kite Runner, Quantum of Solace). It also stars Matthew Fox and Mireille Enos.
The movie’s story revolves around United Nations employee Gerry Lane (Pitt), who traverses the world in a race against time to stop the Zombie pandemic that is toppling armies and governments and threatening to decimate humanity itself. Enos plays Gerry’s wife Karen Lane; Kertesz is his comrade in arms, Segen.
