Brad Pitt starer “World War Z” has landed itself a sequel with Oscar-nominated screenwriter Steven Knight on board to pen the script.

Variety has confirmed the news, with “The Impossible’s” J.A. Bayona set to helm for Paramount and Skydance.

While plot details remain unknown, it is expected that the sequel will continue the story set up in the first film.
