Brad Pitt filmed scenes onboard a warship for his new movie, World War Z, on Monday in Cornwall, England. The movie is based on a novel by Max Brooks that describes a world 10 years after humans are victorious in a war against zombies.

In the Paramount release, Pitt stars opposite Mireille Enos, James Badge Dale, Matthew Fox and Ed Harris. Almost three years after he originally became attached to the project, Marc Forster has at last begun production on the adaptation of Brooks' global zombie pandemic novel. The novel is a detailed tale in which a researcher for the U.N. Postwar Commission interviews survivors from countries all over the world to gather a first-person post-mortem on a war that obliterated every country on the map.
