'The Killing' Star Mireille Enos Looks to Be Enlisting in 'World War Z'
Though director Marc Forster has been attached to the project for over two years, and Brad Pitt agreed to star last summer, the adaptation of World War Z has been developing slowly. The project almost died last month, but thankfully some financing finally came around to help Paramount Pictures fund the feature and it sounds like the studio is gearing up for production to being this summer after all. And even more good news comes with the first new bit of casting as Deadline reports Mireille Enos, who is currently leading the new AMC drama series "The Killing" is in talks to play Pitt's wife in the middle of a zombie apocalypse.
Considering the story of the world's desperate battle against the zombie threat is told in a series of first-person accounts as told to a researcher for the UN Postwar Commission interviewing survivors in countries that were decimated by zombies. Since I haven't read the book, I'm not entirely sure how the author's wife comes into play with the story. Of course maybe there will be some changes made to the format of the events that unfold in the book as Forster has said "it reminded me of the paranoid conspiracy films of the '70s like All the President's Men." I'm not sure what the means for fans of the book itself, but I'm ready for this project to finally get off the ground. How about you?
