World War Z Sequel Finds A Director

A movie based on a book, that had nothing to do with the book - gets a sequel? This is why we can't have nice things!

Juan Antonio Bayona - who directed 2012's tsunami drama The Impossible - is officially on board to helm the World War Z sequel. 

Not surprising that a sequel is in the works, being that the movie grossed $202 million domestically and $540 million internationally.  That's on top of the pre-release drama about massive rewrites and reshoots needed for the third act.  As a World War Z novel adaptation it was awful, but as a zombie movie, it was pretty good and got decent reviews.

No word on what the focus of the story will be for the sequel, but perhaps they will actually pull more stories from the novel this time around.  No writers are attached, but Bayona will oversee the writing process and Brad Pitt will produce.

About the Author - Jeremy Shane

Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea.  Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California.  When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead.  Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim.  If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
