‘Cabin In The Woods’ Co-Writer Drew Goddard To Rewrite ‘World War Z’ Ending
  |  @   |  

The third and final act of Marc Forster‘s adaptation of the Max Brooks novel, World War Z, seems to be littered with problems of all kinds. So many problems are infecting this film, that they had to bring Damon Lindelof to pen the rewrites.

Lindelof, however, was unable to complete the task, and now the job of completing the third and final act of the film is in the hands of Cloverfield and Lost writer and Cabin in the Woods co-writer/director, Drew Goddard.

Deadline said that Lindelof has laid out the frame work for the third act of World War Z, now its up to Goddard to finish it all. The site adds that another writer will most likely be added on since Goddard is also busy doing projects of his own.

So Paramount has Christopher McQuarrie on a short list of writers who could possibly pen rewrites to the third act. Apparently the studio was very pleased with the Jack Reacher script that McQuarrie has written. However, he is also busy working on the script for Doug Liman’s All You Need is Kill – which also stars Tom Cruise.

Reshoots are currently being scheduled and the film is expected to be released summer of next year. So while there is plenty of time to get the reshoots in, the fact that so many writers are entering and exiting certainly doesn’t bode well for the film. Hopefully I am wrong, because World War Z gives audiences a new way to look at the zombie genre – the film will chronicle how the world stopped the zombie apocalypse from occurring.
