World War Z, Max Brooks’ fictitious epic oral history of how and when the zombie pandemic happened, is being made into a film as you may have already known, and they’ve found their director in Marc Forster (Quantum of Solace, Monster’s Ball, Stranger Than Fiction). Even better is the screenwriter, J. Michael Straczynski, who has written episodes of He-Man and Masters of the Universe and The Real Ghostbusters, not to mention numerous comic books including The Amazing Spiderman and Fantastic Four. Brooks himself is known for his prior work, the cult hit The Zombie Survival Guide. What I’m trying to say is that this movie has the potential to kick major ass and make zombiephiles cream their jeans. The only thing that has a chance at surpassing it in overall zombie greatness is Zack Snyder’s next project, Army of the Dead. Read about it here. All this zombie talk is making me giddy.
