The Painfully Obvious Lesson World War Z Should Teach Hollywood The Painfully Obvious Lesson World War Z Should Teach Hollywood
Movies are weird. The movies themselves are entertainment. They’re artistic creations designed by people with stories to tell and messages to convey. However, you only get to tell that story if a business believes that enough people will pay enough money to see you tell it.

A World War Z sequel has been in the pipeline for quite some time, but now the man who has been tasked with scribing the film, Steven Knight, has provided an update on it.

World War Z 2 Moving Forward With A New Writer World War Z 2 Moving Forward With A New Writer
World War Z is destined to be one of those textbook examples of a film that somehow found an audience when the world said there was none. Hollywood loves examples like that, especially when they're running low on franchises to add to their stable of theatrical printing presses. With Paramount hurting for all of the post merger Marvel money they're losing out on, a viable franchise like World War Z is hard to come by. Which means, it's time to hire a new writer and get cracking!

So with Forster out, who should Pitt get to replace him? The director has an excellent working relationship with David Fincher.

We're almost halfway through July-- I know, right?-- and just past the midway point of the year, which means that we're also almost done with summer movie season.

World War Z Sequel Plans Begin... Again World War Z Sequel Plans Begin... Again
World War Z made an estimated $111.8 million worldwide this weekend, a remarkably strong debut for a non-sequel, decidedly non-family movie not based on a familiar property (Max Brooks's novel is great, but not exactly household name). Confident all over again, Paramount has told THR that they will now be actively developing a sequel, though the original plans for a trilogy seem to have at least been sharply altered back when the ending was changed

Does World War Z's PG-13 Rating Hurt It? Does World War Z's PG-13 Rating Hurt It?
As a big-budget, summer blockbuster zombie movie, World War Z had pretty much no choice but to go with a PG-13 rating, which makes it by far the most bloodless zombie movie of recent movie. Because it's such a big movie, with more scenes of zombie hordes overrunning a city than close-up moments of zombie destruction, it gets away with it… to a certain point. Can a PG-13 movie really be a zombie movie, or do you need the blood to even understand the story?

Since World War Z doesn't open until Friday, June 21, that's a two-day head start on the crowds for the really enthusiastic World War Z fans.

If you follow the movie industry closely, there's nothing more fascinating than an autopsy of a disaster, when the people behind a film get away from the promotional speak and soundbites and really dig into what made a film fall apart. It's rare to get that level of candor at any point, but it's practically impossible to get it before a film opens. Which is what makes Vanity Fair's cover story on World War Z an absolute, stop-everything must-read
