Max Brooks' 2006 book "World War Z" told the oral history of a fictional (duh) zombie apocalypse, and didn't exactly feature a movie-ready storyline. So maybe that's why there's been so much trouble bringing this action extravaganza to the screen. Originally due for release last year, the Brad Pitt-starring film underwent seven weeks of reshoots (that's a lot) and reportedly reworked its entire third act. Some reports suggest the studio got cold feet about the story's political undertones and wanted a more audience-friendly tone. We'll see how that worked out.
