World War Z Star Teases Plans for Canceled Sequel

There is little doubt that World War Z was one of those zombie films that had a different take on the genre so it's no surprise that there were plans for a sequel to the Brad Pitt flick. Unfortunately, the second movie was cancelled before it even began production. So what could have happened in World War Z 2? Mireille Enos revealed just how far the cast and crew had gone before Paramount decided to shut down the project.

Enos recently took part in the Big Ticket podcast (via Variety) where she shared some details about the World War Z sequel. According to the Good Omens actress, the cast and crew were ready to begin production and director David Fincher was prepared to shoot the film when they got the bad news.

"We were all lined up to go. We had Fincher, we had a beautiful script and then it just didn't happen," Enos said. She then continued by expressing her disappointment over the cancellation.

"It seems like such a shame for it not to be made. The first one was so good," Enos said.

The first World War Z movie was directed by Marc Forster based on a screenplay written by Matthew Michael Carnahan, Drew Goddard, and Damon Lindelof. The film followed Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt), a former UN field agent whose family gets caught in the middle of a zombie pandemic. With his knowledge, Lane races to find a cure for the disease or face the end of humanity.
