Brad Pitt Back for 'World War Z' Sequel Set to Arrive in June 2017

Briefly: Paramount has confirmed and cleared contracts and deals for the next World War Z sequel, which is definitely moving forward. The studio has announced a release date of June 9th, 2017 two years from now for "World War Z 2" (though it will likely get a new title). Brad Pitt will be back to star again, and he'll be working with director J.A. Bayona for this sequel, which will be "starting with a clean slate" according to the screenwriter. The first movie, based on Max Brooks' beloved zombie book, showed zombies taking over the world in a global epidemic. Only Pitt was brave enough to keep hunting for a solution. We'll keep an eye out for more updates as they continue to work on this sequel. The first movie opened in June of 2013.
