From the Book details..

The Zombie War came unthinkably close to eradicating humanity. Max Brooks, driven by the urgency of preserving the acid-etched first-hand experiences of the survivors from those apocalyptic years, traveled across the United States of America and throughout the world, from decimated cities that once teemed with upwards of thirty million souls to the most remote and inhospitable areas of the planet. He recorded the testimony of men, women, and sometimes children who came face-to-face with the living, or at least the undead, hell of that dreadful time. World War Z is the result.

Cast includes Brad Pitt, Mireille Enos , Daniella Kertesz, James Badge Dale and Matthew Fox.

Directed by Marc Forster, screenplay by Matthew Michael Carnahan, Drew Goddard and Damon Lindelof with screen story by Matthew Michael Carnahan and J Michael Straczynski, based on the novel by Max Brooks.
