Brad Pitt Battles Zombies On Aircraft Carrier
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.
Paramount managed to prevent the whole cinematic endeavor from collapsing a few months back by recruiting additional financiers for the costly $125 million project, according to the Daily Mail. Filming finally began overseas in Malta, which is standing in for Israel – the only country that closes its borders and instills a nationwide quarantine against the zombie hordes in Brooks’ original novel. Pitt is currently filming in Cornwall and will be traveling to Hungary next.
