In Case Of Imminent Zombie Attack:
Step Number 1: Give up all your worldly possessions and head for the hills.
Step Number 2: Drink until in a rage then grab a bat and start swinging (that is, if you didn’t complete Step Number 1).
Step Number 3: Read on after the jump to figure out why there is a picture of Brad Pitt attached to a story as important as zombie survival.
Brad Pitt’s mug is attached to this post for the obvious reason that he is the only man on earth that could possibly save us from a zombie invasion….. Or is it because he is officially signed on to play the lead in the film adaptation of Max Brooks’ World War Z book?? I’ll let you figure out this brain buster.
As Comic Con starts off with a BANG! POW! KABLAAM! all kinds of juicy stories are making their way into the hands of higher beings such as bloggers and radio personalities. One such ditty is that superstud Brad Pitt will not only produce World War Z under his production company, Plan B Entertainment, but that he will take on the lead role in the film as well.
In addition to the wonderful Brad Pitt news, Brooks also just found out that Paramount has optioned the movie rights to “Zombie Survival Guide” and “Recorded Attacks”, two of Brooks other books, and that got him excited:
I can’t believe how cool Paramount has been to me and these projects, and how cool Plan B has been.
Cool. A zombie movie that chronicles the great Zombie War through survivors’ retellings, featuring the Inglorious Basterd, Brad Pitt, and directed by Marc Forster (Quantam of Solace)? I’ve already bought my ticket, and it doesn’t even hit theaters until 2012 – you wish you had the kind of connections I do.
Get all the nitty gritty zombie details here, even though I think I did a pretty decent job myself.
- And if you were in a drunken rage while the Zombie War happened, therefore rendering you incapable of remembering said war, check this out (and lay off the Jager Bombs, bro).
If you’re having trouble imagining what World War Z may look like with Brad Pitt in it, take Exhibit A and insert Exhibit B into it…
