'World War Z 2' Moves Forward With Steven Knight on Script


Brad Pitt


The Oscar-nominated scribe has been assigned to pen the sequel of 'World War Z' which already has Brad Pitt returning to star.

The sequel of "World War Z" is moving forward with a scribe attached. Steven Knight, who was nominated for Oscar in 2004 for "Dirty Pretty Things", has been tapped to write the script of "World War Z 2".

Brad Pitt was the first to reveal that there will be a sequel to the zombie apocalypse movie. Back in September 2013, the actor said a follow-up was in development and he would love to reprise his role as the United Nations agent Gerry Lane. "We have so many ideas and so much information - we think we have a lot of stuff to mine from," he said at that time, adding, "We gotta get the script right first to determine if we go further."

A month later it was announced that Marc Forster who directed the first movie wouldn't return for the sequel, reportedly because there was a fallout between him and Pitt. "The Impossible" director Juan Antonio Bayona was brought in later in December.

Pitt will produce with Jeremy Kleiner and DeDe Gardner under his Plan B flag. Paramount and Skydance will handle the distributions. Plot is still kept under wraps but it is expected that it continues the story of Max Brooks' popular novel.
