World War Z taps Drew Goddard for rewrite

Posted by Mark Raby

The movie adaptation of World War Z continues to experience turbulence.

You would think that writing a script for a movie that's based on a book that has already been written wouldn't be that difficult.

However, that apparently hasn't been the case with World War Z, which has already faced a lot of unexpected costs due to millions of dollars worth of reshoots.

The movie, starring Brad Pitt, is now undergoing a bunch of script changes, specifically related to the end of the story.

It had been previously reported that Damon Lindelof was being tapped to rewrite the final part of the movie script, but apparently he only came up with a general idea on how to close the story.

It's now been confirmed that Drew Goddard, who co-wrote the horror flick Cabin in the Woods, is the one who's actually bringing Lindelof's ideas to life.

World War Z is an epic story about a zombie apocalypse. The novel was written by Max Brooks and it quickly gained a huge cult following.

Because of its success, it was of course only a matter of time before someone in Hollywood snatched up the rights and decided to turn it into a movie.

But it's believed the project has gone way over budget because of various problems both in production and post-production, and it doesn't seem to be getting any better. Hopefully in the end, it will all be worth it.
