Marc Forster Goes From Bond To Zombies

Variety reports Marc Forster, director of this week’s opening Quantum of Solace has been selected by Paramount to direct the upcoming zombie flick World War Z.

World War Z is the 2006 best-selling novel written by Max Brooks about a future global war against zombies. It is written in the form of interviews featuring multiple survivor perspectives from all over the world recounting their individual struggles throughout the war.

The novel began its translation to the big screen early last year when it was announced that Brad Pitt’s production company, Plan B Productions, would be partnering with Paramount to produce the film. J. Michael Straczynski, who wrote the recent Changeling, was selected to write the screenplay. [via]

World War Z is expected to release sometime in 2010 and there’s no word yet whether or not Brad Pitt will be acting in it.
