Brad Pitt Wants to Return in a Sequel to Marc Forster's World War Z

According to a report from Variety, Brad Pitt is currently in talks with Paramount and Skydance, who are hoping to bring David Fincher on board to direct a sequel to World War Z. Pitt and Fincher have collaborated together on a few projects in the past, which includes Fight Club, Seven, and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Pitt will star in the film and produce it, as he did in the original.

According to sources, Fincher and Pitt met two weeks ago to discuss the possibility of Fincher boarding the zombie tentpole. The talks were initially lukewarm, but sources now tell Variety that negotiations are much further down the road and that other director currently has an offer.

The World War Z follow-up will be set during a zombie apocalypse.

The sequel is expected to begin filming in early 2017.
