One of the more appealing things about Max Brooks’ novel World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War was its narrative. It was in fact an oral history, as the narrator travels the ravaged post-war world, interviewing survivors and piecing together a comprehensive story of what happened. However it looks like in the film adaptation, they’ve turned back time to put the viewer right in the middle of the Zombie War.
So in essence, it looks like they’re making it all Hollywood. Instead of a thoughtful sci-fi narrative, it’s just straight up action.
Paramount has officially released the film synopsis for Marc Forster‘s movie adaptation of World War Z, and there is one major change:
The story revolves around United Nations employee Gerry Lane (Pitt), who traverses the world in a race against time to stop the Zombie pandemic that is toppling armies and governments and threatening to decimate humanity itself. Enos plays Gerry’s wife Karen Lane; Kertesz is his comrade in arms, Segen.
So, basically, there’s a huge shift in the timeline where the story now takes place as the war is happening, and apparently Brad Pitt‘s character, Gerry Lane, is on a mission to stop it.
Well ain’t that some shit?
