Brad Pitt talks World War Z sequel and 12 Years A Slave

Movie News

Aside from occupying your mother’s nightly fantasies, Brad Pitt has been making the rounds discussing his upcoming projects. Mr. Jolie’s next film, “12 Years A Slave” is garnering early Oscar Buzz. Directed by Steve McQueen (“Shame”), and starring Pitt, Michael Fassbender and Chiwetel Ejiofor, the film is a 19th century drama which tells the true story of Solomon Northrop, a free black man who was kidnapped and sold into slavery in the 1840s.

In an interview with Variety, Pitt had this to say on the film that received two standing ovations at the Toronto Film Festival: “It’s pretty special. It’s one of those rare moments where story, performance and storytelling come together at the level. We’re very proud of it.”

Pitt’s production company, Plan B, is producing the film- which is based on a novel by John Ridley.

While making the rounds discussing “12 Years,” Jon Voight’s son-in-law was asked about his little zombie movie that over-performed at the box office earlier this summer. When a sequel was brought up Pitt told Variety, ““We’re certainly talking about it, yesWe have so many ideas on the table from the time we spent developing this thing and figuring out how the zombie worlds work.”

You may recall that “World War Z” was surrounded by negative buzz because of the film’s troubled production- which included delays, budget blowouts, and a massive rewrite of the film’s final act. Most expected the movie to bomb. Instead, it grossed a stunning $533 million worldwide and got the folks at Paramount wondering if the proposed trilogy could become a reality. Smartly, the studio is following Pitt’s lead on this one since he carried the first film on his back.

“We have so many ideas and so much information–we think we have a lot of stuff to mine from,” Pitt said. The film’s star and producer also wisely added, “We gotta get the script right first to determine if we go further.”
