Braaaaaiiiiinnnzzz

Max Brooks’ best selling novel “World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War,” eats the big screen in December 2012.

Production footage of the upcoming zombie thriller, World War Z, has recently been captured by a group of locals in Glasgow, Scotland where director Marc Foster has been shooting urban car crash scenes for action sequences. The film follows UN representative Gerry Lane, played by Brad Pitt, as he gathers information for a government report documenting the recent war against zombies: World War Z. In interviewing survivors of the apocalypse, Gerry learns more about the devastation, turmoil, and horror that has plagued the world with the spread of the solanum virus. His wife, Karen, will be played by Mireille Enos.

  

For noobs: Solanum is the name of the fictional virus responsible for turning moral human beings into relentless, flesh-devouring monsters.

Based on Max Brooks’ post-apocalyptic horror novel, World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War, the film is expected to offer a graphic rendering of a zombie outbreak, as well as an in-depth analysis of survival tactics and the turmoil that comes with feelings of with uncertainty and solitude. When you are at war with an unpredictable virus that transforms your friends and family into the creatures of your demise, who can be on your side? Find out on December 21, 2012.

Interesting fact: The release date, December 21, 2012, is also appropriately deemed to be the end of the world, according to the Mayan calender. Despite these suspicions being largely based on hokum, it is interesting that the release date for one of the most notable upcoming apocalyptic thrillers will also take place on the day that marks the “apocalypse.” Coincidence? I think not.
