Nothing gets Hollywood hot under the collar more than a potential franchise in the making. And now, Paramount may have just found their next cash cow.
The LA Times is reporting that Paramount and director Marc Forster are looking at the upcoming film World War Z as a possible trilogy. They go on to compare the film to a mix of the “Jason Bourne series tethered to the unsettling end-times vibe of AMC’s The Walking Dead.” Talk about some high hopes.
World War Z stars Brad Pitt and Mirielle Enos, and while Forster isn’t quite the name one would like to see behind a franchise like this, hopes are obviously high. I think that, given the beloved source material, there is quite a bit of potential within this project, and toss in the top tier cast, and you have a film that has a great chance of being just that, great.
