All the way back in December, we reported that Marc Forster wouldn’t be returning to helm the sequel to World War Z, an adaptation of the Max Brooks novel of the same name. Instead, The  Impossible’s Juan Antonio Bayona would be helming it, and since then it’s been rather quiet as to the direction of the project.

However, we can expect to see Brad Pitt return to our screens in the near zombie-infested future, as Locke’s Steven Knight, oscar-nominee for Dirty Pretty Things, has been brought on board by Paramount and Skydance to pen the sequel.

World War Z surprised most critics back in 2013, when it earned more than $540 million worldwide, solidifying it as one of Pitt’s most financially successful ventures yet.

The sequel has no release date as of yet, but will have Pitt producing alongside Jeremy Kleiner and Dede Gardner.
