Brad Pitt Starring in Film Adaptation of World War Z.
Via the MTV Movies Blog:
Pitt’s production company Plan B Entertainment first secured the rights to “World War Z” back in 2007 after a bidding war with Leonardo DiCaprio’s company, Appian Way. The actor has long been rumored as a potential lead for the film, but Brooks received the call confirming Pitt’s attachment (and the other “Survival Guide” deals) while signing copies of the books at the Avatar booth tonight (Wednesday, July 21) during Preview Night at Comic-Con.
Spoiler alert, toward the end of the movie we find out that Brad Pitt’s character is really just a figment of the real main character’s imagination.
