Awesome Concept Art for Max Brooks' World War Z Movie
Even with Quantum of Solace director Marc Forster attached to direct, I don't really know how anyone could not be excited for World War Z, the epic worldwide zombie invasion movie currently in development. In addition to Forster, "Babylon 5" creator J. Michael Straczynski penned the screenplay, which we outlined in a previous article. To top all of that off, io9 has uncovered some early concept art for the film from artist Daniel LuVisi. The full painting is titled "The Battle Of Yonkers" and is wonderfully detailed, as you can see below. If the film looks anything like this, then we're in for one hell of a treat.
Either click on the photo below or head over to io9 to see a larger version or see close ups of the more detailed parts of the painting. There's no better way to put it then to say that this looks awesome.
World War Z is an adaptation of Max Brooks' book of the same name that comprises numerous stories told by survivors of "World War Z", or rather, our war with the zombies. As Straczynski describes, "the fictional concept of the book is that its written by someone with the UN." So for the film, they decided to "show the book being written. We follow this guy all over the world as he goes on these interviews, and he has his own personal story as well. You're cutting between the past and the present, how he got to this point." The book is brilliant and this adaptation is sounding (and looking) better and better by the minute.
