It appears that there are two ways to kill a zombie movie, an over inflated budget and production delays. I’m sure there are more ways to do it, but it looks like those two things were the bullet to the head for World War Z 2.
The sequel, which was supposed to bring back Brad Pitt and be directed by David Fincher, has been cancelled by Paramount Pictures. More on the report below.
Netflix has released a new trailer for their upcoming original series Mindhunter. The show is created by Joe Penhall (The Road) and executive produced by David Fincher (The Social Network, Fight Club) and Charlize Theron (Atomic Blonde, Mad Max: Fury Road).
Fincher also directed multiple episodes of the crime drama, a genre he’s of course no stranger to having previously directed titles like Se7en, Zodiac, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and Gone Girl. Other directors include Asif Kapadia (Senna, Amy) and Andrew Douglas (2005’s The Amityville Horror).

Back in August of last year, there was a report that David Fincher was in talks to direct the tentatively titled World War Z 2. Then in February Paramount pulled the sequel off its release schedule because the film never actually went into production. Just after that, it was reported that Fincher was still interested in the project.
Now Fincher is reportedly getting closer to inking a deal that would have him direct the zombie thriller, reuniting him with Brad Pitt once again. Trouble is, even if he does end up directing, the film still needs a greenlight. More on the story below.
