David Fincher is Officially Set to Direct WORLD WAR Z 2!
David Fincher is officially set to direct Brad Pitt in World War Z 2! There were reports early in the year that he was in talks to direct and that he was creatively interested in doing it. Well, the deal has been sealed and I'm super excited!
Fincher is one of my favorite directors working in the business and I can't wait to see what he ends up doing with the zombie genre! I never thought I'd see Fincher make a zombie movie but he obviously has a vision for the film and he's excited to develop it. I have no doubt that he'll give us something different and unique with the genre.
Pitt and Fincher have made some great films together such as Seven, Fight Club, and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. I couldn't be happier that they will be working together again on World War Z 2. According to a previous report, "Fincher was looking to make the film about a man and his family navigating a zombie apocalypse."
Apparently, we can all thank Paramount Picture's new chairman and CEO Jim Gianopulos for making this happen. He has a long-standing relationship with the director. According to Variety, the film will most likely go into production in early 2018.
This will be the first film that Fincher will have directed since Gone Girl in 2014. What do you all think of the filmmaker taking on World War Z 2?
