Based on its troubled production, World War Z was supposed to bomb at the box office, but a Hail Mary attempt to rescue the movie worked out, and the movie ended up making over $539 million at the global box office. Now, sequel talks are underway.

The 'World War Z' Sequel Won't Have Marc Forster as Its Director – After weathering a plethora of bad buzz to become an unlikely box office success, Brad Pitt-starring zombie flick "World War Z" quickly earned itself a sequel, with Paramount announcing the follow-up soon after "Z" scored the highest opening of Pitt's career.

David Fincher's 'Black Hole' Back On At Brad Pitt's Plan B, Slate Also Includes New Film From Taika Waititi – Not to be mistaken with the 1979 Disney film turned upcoming Joseph Kosinski remake, author Charles Burns'“Black Hole” remains one of the great adaptations lying in wait.

After reports of a troubled production, the box office success of Brad Pitt's World War Z caught a lot of people by surprise. Among them are probably the filmmakers themselves. Now, they're scrambling to come up with something for the obligatory sequel.

Watch: Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt and Javier Bardem In Two New Clips From 'The Counselor' – Ahead of tomorrow's release of the full trailer, the folks behind Ridley Scott's Cormac McCarthy-penned "The Counselor" have released two clips from the star-studded film, which stars Michael Fassbender in the title role alongside Brad Pitt, Cameron Diaz, Penélope Cruz, and Javier Bardem. The clips both feature Fassbender, one alongside Pitt, the other with Bardem (though hopefully the trailer offers more of Diaz and Cruz, rumored to be the highlights of the film). 1 year 6 weeks ago via donnieyen

Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Benedict Cumberbatch and Paul Giamatti, among many others in a sprawling cast, star in the true-life tale of Solomon Northrup, a free African-American man abducted and sold into slavery in the pre-Civil War United States. 1 year 12 weeks ago via brucelee
