THE FIRST CUT OF WORLD WAR Z COMES IN AT LESS THAN AN HOUR?

It’s no secret that the WORLD WAR Z production has been nothing if not troubled. Damon Lindelof was recently hired to rewrite the ending, original director Mark Forster was unable to run things properly, letting things get out of hand, and in October of 2011, Hungarian police raided the set of WORLD WAR Z and confiscated 85 unauthorized weapons for cryin’ out loud.

After Lindelof figured out how much additional work was needed when he was brought in to handle the third act, he handed the project off to collaborator Drew Goddard. Sources say Paramount execs only had 52 minutes of continuous footage cut together to show them, along with a few minutes of other action. The film is said to be gearing up for a seven-week reshoot in London.

So much money is being put into re-shoots and re-writes that I’m certain, if they haven’t scrapped the flick by now, we will be seeing the film eventually, but when? Who knows. We’ll keep you posted on events as they keep developing.

SYNOPSIS:

The 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.
