World War Z sequel aiming for June 2019 production start date

Now, we’ve been down this road before on a couple of occasions, so you may not want to get too excited just yet, but it seems the oft-delayed World War Z sequel may finally be about to escape Development Hell.

Speaking to Variety, producers Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner have revealed that a June 2019 production start date has been set, with both Brad Pitt and his Se7en, Fight Club and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button director David Fincher still on board.

Kleiner went on to state that work continues on the screenplay for the follow-up to the 2013 zombie blockbuster, with Dennis Kelly (Utopia) rewriting an original draft from Steven Knight (Peaky Blinders).

The first World War Z shrugged aside production troubles to gross $540 million worldwide back in 2013, with the sequel announced almost immediately. However, it subsequently encountered a number of setbacks, the latest coming earlier this year when

David Fincher and Brad Pitt's World War Z 2 Starts Production Next Summer

Yes, the long-awaited World War Z sequel is still going to happen. David Fincher is officially set to direct the film and Brad Pitt will return to reprise his role.

Regardless of the production problems surrounding the first film, it actually turned out really good! I enjoyed it more than I thought I would and with Fincher directing the sequel I’m even more stoked about World War Z 2! He’s one of my favorite directors and I can’t wait to see what he does with this next chapter of the story!

We’ve now learned that Fincher will start shooting the sequel next summer! Producer Dede Gardner recently confirmed:

World War Z 2 Targets June Start Date, David Fincher Will Still Direct

It looks like World War Z 2 may finally be getting underway next year, but don't hold your breath. The sequel has been in development for a handful of years now and it's had a very difficult road in terms of actually getting cameras rolling. World War Z 2 has been delayed several times and, at this point, it's tough to get excited until the ball is good and truly rolling. However, producers Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner have offered an optimistic update on the status of the project.

The producing pair were recently in attendance at the premiere of Beautiful Boy. On the red carpet, they were asked to provide an update on World War Z 2. While they couldn't say much, Dede Gardner got the thing started by confidently stating that the movie will begin filming next summer. That is, assuming they don't hit another major snag along the way.

World War Z” is finally gearing up to start production on the long-awaited sequel, or at least that’s the latest update provided by the film’s producers Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner. The producing duo confirmed to Variety on the “Beautiful Boy” red carpet that not only is David Fincher still attached to direct Brad Pitt in the film, but also cameras will start rolling in June 2019. The summer production most likely means the sequel is heading for a 2020 release.

Marc Forster directed the original “World War Z,” which Paramount Pictures released in theaters during summer 2013. The movie was based on Max Brooks’ 2006 novel of the same name and starred Brad Pitt as a former Un employee who travels the globe to find a cure to stop a massive zombie pandemic. Pitt is confirmed to reprise his role, but the jury is still out on whether or not other

Helena Bonham Carter On Harvey Weinstein, #MeToo & The Difficulties Surrounding Eleanor Riese Drama ’55 Steps’
Helena Bonham Carter has lifted the lid on a number of controversial subjects including her relationship with Harvey Weinstein, #MeToo and the difficulties surrounding her latest film, 55 Steps.

In an interview with The Guardian, the Fight Club star called Weinstein a “bully” and said that she thought his behavior over the years was “chilling” but added that she never thought it would come back to haunt him.

“I found the way he treated certain people chilling – without any kind of respect. There were many times I disagreed with the way he behaved, and I don’t mean sexually,” she said. “There were times when Harvey asked me to do certain things, and I said no. I knew I was running a thin line. Standing up to him wasn’t an easy thing to do because I knew I could potentially lose work.”

One example she gave of working with

Michael Myers Menaces Cover of First Fangoria Return Issue

Fangoria is back in a big way. The horror magazine of the 80s and 90s is returning in print, and they're also producing brand new movies, with Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich in theaters earlier this year. Fangoria is ready to launch their first return issue. And stalking the cover is none other than Halloween bad boy Michael Myers, looking as menacing as ever.

For old school horror fans, it's a little hard to believe that Michael Myers and Fangoria are both back as Halloween quickly approached. The first issue of Fangoria's newly re-launched magazine is shipping out to those smart enough to have already subscribed. And the team behind getting this classic horror staple back up and running have shared the very first cover for the magazine's hugely anticipated revival.

Fangoria isn't necessarily reinventing itself. We get the classic art layout we all fondly remember being so fascinated with back in the day.

Bruce Willis and Brad Piit in 12 Monkeys on Blu-ray October 30th From Arrow Video

Terry Gilliam’s 12 Monkeys (1995) starring Bruce Willis and Brad Piit will be available on Blu-ray October 30th From Arrow Video

The Future Is History

Following the commercial and critical success of The Fisher King, Terry Gilliam next feature would turn to science fiction and a screenplay by Janet and David Peoples inspired by Chris Marker’s classic short film La Jetée.

In 1996, a deadly virus is unleashed by a group calling themselves the Army of the Twelve Monkeys, destroying much of the world’s population and forcing survivors underground. In 2035, prisoner James Cole is chosen to go back in time and help scientists in their search for a cure.

Featuring an Oscar-nominated turn by Brad Pitt (Fight Club) as mental patient Jeffrey Goines, Twelve Monkeys would become Gilliam’s most successful film and is now widely regarded as a sci-fi classic. Arrow Films are proud to present the film in a stunning new restoration.

Will Smith, LeBron James, Jon Stewart Join Dave Chappelle for All-Star Standup Show
Dave Chappelle hosted a star-studded surprise comedy show at the Peppermint Club in Los Angeles on Wednesday night (Sept. 19). Joining the comic for a turn on stage was the multi-hyphenate Will Smith, basketball giant and recent L.A. transplant LeBron James, Jon Stewart, Michelle Wolf, Katt Williams, Michael Che and John Mayer, who provided background guitar work and the occasional zinger.

Few of those gathered at the private venue expected such high-wattage guests, though a mandatory lock-out of all mobile devices should have offered the first clue. Indeed, there was not a cell phone in sight as jokes delivered tackled such topics as the #MeToo movement, race and religion. “Comedy ‘Fight Club'” was how Chappelle described the night, which offered more than three-and-a-half hours of belly laughs. The show also had its serious moments. Jon Stewart made an impassioned plea for gun control; Williams sang a hopeful tune for

Leading Hollywood Screenwriter Workspace theOffice Reopens In Santa Monica

  • Deadline
The unofficial “screenwriters den” for film and TV screenwriters known as theOffice has reopened its doors in Santa Monica after relocating from its original home in Brentwood.

Not to be confused with the NBC comedy by the same name (although it would be cool if it had the same set up), theOffice is a communal workspace for writers who are working on the next big film screenplay or TV series — and they have a roster of alumni to back it up which include J.J. Abrams, Chris Weitz, as well as Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. star Clark Gregg who wrote What Lies Beneath and Choke. Other alums include Stepmom writer Gigi Levangie, Finding Dory‘s Victoria Strouse, All the Money in the World‘s David Scarpa, and Noah Oppenheim, screenwriter of Jackie and The Maze Runner.

Brooke Shields wrote the first words of her book on postpartum depression at the workspace. Charter members include her husband,

‘Dietland’: Marti Noxon on the Revolutionary Show’s ‘Wizard of Oz’-Inspired Sexy Tiger Man
[Editor’s note: Spoilers follow for “Dietland” Season 1, Episode 3, “Y Not.”]

When IndieWire first spoke to “Dietland” creator Marti Noxon about her new AMC dark comedy, she mentioned a number of influences on the show. But while the premise has elicited more than one comparison to a lady version of “Fight Club,” Noxon’s go-to inspiration was “The Wizard of Oz,” specifically in how it visually represented the journey of self-discovery for Plum (Joy Nash).

“When I kept talking about visual references, I was like, I don’t want it to be one of these gray shows,” she said. “I don’t want it to be all blue saturated. I want it to be like a technicolor. It has a kind of musical quality. There are drab places, but then there are these other places that are just hyper-colored. Plum starts in kind of Kansas, but where she ends up should be over the rainbow. It should be colorful,

Michael Kaplan (‘The Alienist’ costume designer) waited 24 years to work on this ‘designer’s dream’ [Exclusive Video Interview]

Costume designer Michael Kaplan‘s interest in “The Alienist” stretches back to when Caleb Carr‘s original novel was first published in 1994. “I just loved so many elements of it,” he recalls. “It seemed like a designer’s dream to be able to illuminate everything that was going on in 1896.” Produced by Cary Joji Fukunaga (“True Detective”), this TNT limited series focuses on a newspaper illustrator (Luke Evans) who teams up with a criminal psychologist (Daniel Brühl) and a headstrong NYPD secretary (Dakota Fanning) to investigate a serial killer in 19th century New York City. Kaplan kept a close watch on the project’s development for 24 years before finally landing the job. Watch our exclusive video interview with Kaplan above.
