Yeah, no reason to be worried about this movie…
So to bring you up to speed: the filmed version of World War Z from director Marc Foster and producer/star Brad Pitt based on the popular novel by Max Brooks, was postponed from an awards’ season worthy release date of December 2012 to summer 2013 for some reshoots. Those reshoots have since been scheduled for September-October 2012. Now, the news is that Prometheus and Star Trek 2 screenwriter Damon Lindelof has been brought in to rewrite portions of the script in preparation for those reshoots.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lindelof will try to make sense of the film’s third act, which will apparently take up the brunt of the reshoots, which are reported to be seven weeks long. Concerned yet?
Of course, this kind of behind the scenes drama is not uncommon. Look at 2007’s The Invasion, which was postponed a year, had an entirely new production team brought aboard for extended retakes, and then released to an indifferent public who quickly forgot it existed.
Yeah, World War Z deserves better.
How concerned are you Bastards about this news?
