In 2013, it was shown for the first time for the world to witness another world of zombies. Seven years later, fans are still waiting for a sequel confirmation. While the movie was canceled again in February 2019, after constantly changing potential release dates, zombie fans have not lost all hope in Mark Forster, the director of the first film.
Why was it canceled in the first place?
World War Z: Release Date
The sequel was announced after World War Z which was a huge hit with gross box office revenue of $ 500 million worldwide. It was scheduled for release in 2017. With no development in the film whatsoever, the film has been postponed to 2018; Then again until June 2019 due to Brad Pitt’s commitments. David Fincher’s Mindhunter series caused filming of the second part to be delayed to another date.
Paramount halted pre-production again, as China – the largest market for movies – imposed a ban on zombie films.
If you are still considering a supplement, do so at your own expense. However, the movie could be a reality. Although it can be elusive. In January 2020, co-producer Jeremy Kleiner said, “We love Max Brooks’s book. We love the universe of it. It doesn’t look like World War Z is over and it’s over.” Better hope for the best!
World War Z: Cast
When the movie is not confirmed, the cast’s announcement will be crap. We know Brad Pitt will reprise his role as Jerry Lynn, a former UN investigator, and zombie fighter, in the sequel if that happens. And Karen Lynn likely will be dating Jerry’s wife, too. The wife played Mirai Inos in the movie.
World War Z 2: Plot
The first movie was a adaptation of the novel of the same title by Max Brooks. The novel contains a lot of material to provide for the story of the second film.
In November 2017, Fincher said, “A lot of stones have been laid.” “We’re just deconstructing it now as opposed to the existing myth to see where we can go.”
We have no idea about the plot. Denise Kelly, known for his thriller series Utopia, jumped on the project in October 2015. He wrote the script at the time. We have no way of knowing if it has passed, or if this is something that is still on their minds after five long, life-changing years.
World War Z 2: Finale
The movie ended with Jerry reuniting with his family in Nova Scotia. Originally, the film was supposed to end with him going to Russia, where he fought bravely to save his fellow Israeli soldier. Montage Al-Nasr used the footage of this scene at the end of the film.
In the course of the movie, Jerry makes a huge discovery that zombies leave you alone if they think (with their mindless tops) that you are dying or sick. This led to the development of a vaccine that allowed people to pretend to get sick while encountering zombies with ease.
