Strategies for World War Z Two were bandied around back around the time of World War Z’s release. But as far as strategies, those don’t appear to have materialized.
That time came and went without production even with started, although at one stage the sequel was scheduled for launch in 2017. The shooting was then anticipated to start in autumn 2018 later it was pushed back as a result of Brad Pitt registering for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
Another delay soon followed — brought on by director David Fincher’s work on Mindhunter season two — which meant that shooting was likely to start in June 2019 instead, with that date later moved forward to March.
But then came the news that the sequel was postponed yet again as Paramount has halted pre-production about the sequel. The Hollywood Reporter implied it was down to the simple fact that China would not release the first because unnatural stories of zombies are seemingly politically sensitive.
The present situation is that the film isn’t occurring but keep a watch here as we mentioned above.
World War Z 2 cast: Who is in it?
Brad Pitt is onboard to reprise his starring role as zombie fighter Gerry Lane and former United Nations investigator if the sequel does happen, but that’ll change depending on when or if there has been a filming date supported.
In May 2016, Mireille Enos verified that she’d return as his wife, Karin Lane. It’s not clear where things stand four decades later and, unsurprisingly, no additional casting has been announced.
World War Z two plot: What is it going to be about?
The first movie was just broadly based on the bestselling novel of the same name by author Max Brooks (the son of Anne Bancroft and Mel Brooks, FYI), therefore predicting the plot of the sequel is a tricky enterprise.
The original movie ended with a glimmer of hope for humanity’s survival against the undead hordes, but as Gerry Lane says in the close of the movie, there’s still much left to be carried out.
The publication, whose story spans the globe and stretches to a future by the zombie pandemic, offers plenty of material for those filmmakers to draw on.
“A lot of stones are laid,” said Fincher in November 2017. “We are only deconstructing it against the mythology which exists to see where we could go.”
As they left it, the remnants of humanity had discovered how to maneuver”hidden” among the contaminated — by trapping themselves with deadly but curable ailments — but the entire world stayed overrun.
In World War Z two we’d expect to see that the fightback begin, but whether that fightback ever really starts remains to be seen…
