World War Z


"Ten years after the human victory over the world wide Zombie epidemic, referred to as World War Z, an anonymous editor scours the world collecting the stories and experiences of those who have survived the conflict that almost eradicated humanity."

"The screenplay was written by Babylon 5 and Rising Stars creator J. Michael Straczynski, who identified the challenge in adapting the work as 'creating a main character out of a book that reads as a UN Report on the zombie wars.' Marc Forster signed on to direct on November 13, 2008, and described the film as reminiscent of 1970s conspiracy thrillers like All the President's Men."

I still haven't gotten around to reading the book it's based on, which I heard is nothing short of the greatest zombie book ever written, but I do own his 'The Zombie Survival Guide,' so this should be amazing once it's finished.
