Exclusive: WORLD WAR Z 2 Story Details
There’s been rumors in the past few months that David Fincher (Fight Club, Social Network, Gone Girl) will direct Brad Pitt in the sequel to World War Z. The first film earned $540 million worldwide, which is Brad Pitt’s highest-grossing opening weekend ever at $66 million, so its a no brainer to have a sequel.
I actually enjoyed the first film and was curious what the story will be about, so ver the weekend I received a hot tip from one of my sources concerning the plot to the sequel:
“Not long after the events of the first film, people live in the safe zone from zombies. Thanks to the camouflage vaccine, humans are mostly safe. The vaccine only works for 36 hours. Worldwide armies have not been able to rout the zombie hordes. Even worst, political tension has gripped the planet, different countries military factions are threatening to fight each other.
Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt) and his family are still in Halifax, Canada. In Geneva, Dr. Morel, a brilliant virologist has created something called E29. An airborne virus that will make zombies attack each other. A planet wide offensive against the zombies has been planned using E29. Laboratories everywhere are waiting for the genetic sequence to create it. Dr. Morel disappears before sending the last information necessary to finish it. Gerry travels the world to find her and figure out what happened. (Geneva, Singapore and Bangladesh) Something even worst has happened, zombies are now immune to the camouflage. Humanity has nowhere to hide, and it’s a race against time to find Dr. Morel.”
Sounds quite interesting. I like the idea of having Brad Pitt traveling the globe to save humanity. Let’s hope it happens!
World War Z 2 production would probably begin in the first quarter of 2018 with a 2019 release date.
