Paramount Pictures has re-upped on their option to adapt Max Brooks’ post-apocalyptic zombie novel World War Z.  I have friends who are fans of the books and they’re wondering about when the film adaptation is coming along.  Director Marc Forster (Quantum of Solace) is unfortunately still attached to helm the flick.  However, the flick has made an improvement in the screenwriter department by replacing J. Michael Straczynski (Changeling) with Matthew Michael Carnahan (State of Play).

Brooks’ book is about a researcher for the U.N. Postwar Commission who interviews survivors from all over the world in order to put together a post-mortem on a war that destroyed every country around the globe.  [Variety]

    For the record, Cuba was most certainly not destroyed. They flourished during the war.

    Sometimes Matt, your unnecessary negative connotations bring your articles down. J. Micheal Straczynski is a fine writer, that did a lot of great things with Spider-Man, among other characters. Quantum of Solace, while not as good as Casino Royale, was by no means badly directed. Don't even get me started on your assessment of Joss Whedon taking The Avengers. I'll leave it as, you seem to hold bias that are unfounded. *shrugs*

    Quantum of Solace was horribly directed, particularly the action scenes.

    Better choice for adaptation: Day-By-Day Armageddon
