World War Z is yet the greatest box-office success of his actor star, Brad Pitt. Released in 2013, the blockbuster movie was about the quest of Gerry Lane in search of an antidote to counter the epidemic of a zombie virus that devastates humanity. To reassure the production, David Fincher had presented a draft of the following below the $ 190 million that had cost the first film. But Paramount has preferred to promote a franchise to success almost certain in the signing of two upcoming installment of “Mission: Impossible”. After the very good returns for Fallout (2018), the us studios have seen no longer have room in their schedule to place World War Z 2 .
But the explanation would not only be financial. According to Konbini , the death of the president of the Paramount in 2017, the support of David Fincher and Brad Pitt, has worsened a little more the project. The overly long production of the film is also in question. The removal of the director J. A. Bayona, originally planned in the realization and preferred to concentrate on the filming of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom , has nothing easy.
