After numerous delays, including losing its original director J.A. Bayona, and fans’ mounting fears that sequel to World War Z would never be seen, the second film has finally landed on Paramount’s schedule. Directed by David Fincher, the film will return Brad Pitt to the world of the infected. Dennis Kelly (Black Sea) is on board to pen the script.
During a conversation with Variety producers Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner revealed that the film is set to begin shooting in June of 2019. That would put World War Z 2 being released sometime in 2020 or 2021. The good news here is that the film still has life left in it yet.
