Ed Harris and Matthew Fox Are Also Joining the Cast of 'World War Z'
Just yesterday we learned that "The Pacific" star James Badge Dale would be joining the growing cast of the adaptation of Max Brooks' novel World War Z. Director Marc Forster is directing the feature film take on the post-zombie-apocalyptic story which sees Brad Pitt as a researcher for the U.N. Postwar Commission learning as much as he can about the zombie epidemic ten years later. Now Bloody Disgusting reports "Lost" star Matthew Fox has signed on to take a role in the film as well. However, it's not clear how substantial his role will be since his character is simply referred to as "Parajumper." So that's interesting.
In addition, Deadline also reports Ed Harris has joined the film, but his role hasn't been disclosed. Since I haven't read the book, I can't speak as to what Fox's role might entail, but it's surely part of what will likely be a series of flashbacks showing the zombie epidemic unfold. The book follows the U.N. researcher conducting interviews to find out about the zombie outbreak, but it's still unclear how the story will be presented on screen. This new casting doesn't really help clear things up either. Anyway, with as many zombie films that have hit the big screen, this cast certainly gets my attention for another one. How about you?
