"The film rights to author Max Brooks' zombie book World War Z have been bought by Brad Pitt to be adapted for his production company Plan B, MTV reported. Pitt also plans to act in the film. The movie is planned for release during summer 2012."This is pretty cool news. World War Z is an excellent book, although may not be easy to adapt to the big screen given that it is essentially a collection of interviews and memoirs from various survivors of the zombie outbreak. However, there's some wonderful moments in the book that will no doubt translate very well to the film medium; the battle of the US army against a million zombies at Yonkers could look pretty spectacular.
Definitely one to watch.
