Author Max Brook confirmed that there’s a movie adaptation of his bestseller zombie novel World War Z. Director Marc Forster (who directed Quantum of Solace) is set to helm the project Paramount Pictures. And Actor Brad Pitt will have a lead role.

Word War Z makes for a thrilling read. Glad they’re going to bring this master piece to the big screen. I wonder if they’re going to keep the same structure though: the book is actually collection of individual accounts in the form of interviews of different characters. And along the story we get a better picture of the origins of World War Z and how it changed the world. I’d think it’s too much for just one movie, so I guess they will simplify the whole thing for the film.
They’re eying a Summer 2012 release for the movie World War Z.
