WORLD WAR Z Sequel Eyeing Summer Start Date With Brad Pitt Set To Return & David Fincher Directing

It's been a long time since we received any sort of World War Z update and it sounds like the film will finally go into production next summer with Brad Pitt set to return and David Fincher directing!

It's been nearly a year since 2x Academy Award-nominee David Fincher officially signed on to helm Paramount's World War Z sequel and while it was initially expected to roll cameras at the top of this current calendar year, nothing ever came to fruition as Fincher instead opted to focus on directing the second season of his acclaimed Netflix series Mindhunter and Pitt signed on to star in Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

As a result, the perpetually in-development sequel was pushed back to an undetermined future date, which is rarely good news, but now, according to a new update, it sounds like cameras may actually start rolling as soon as next summer.

While speaking with producers Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner at the Beautiful Boy premiere earlier this week, Variety learned that the studio currently has plans to begin filming in June 2019 and that both Brad Pitt and David Fincher are still very much attached as star and director, respectively. Further details weren't provided, but this is certainly the most promising news WWZ fans have received in months.
