Marc Forster Won't Be Back to Direct WORLD WAR Z Sequel

It comes as no surprise that a sequel is on the way for "World War Z" given the steady box office numbers and it marking the largest opening of any Brad Pitt film. It also comes as no surprise that director Marc Forster will not be returning for the sequel alongside Pitt and his production company, Plan B Entertainment.

While promoting his new film "12 Years a Slave", Pitt also briefly spoke about the zombie sequel. He stated, "Plan B also is developing a sequel to Z, which still is in its nascent stages, though director Marc Forster won't be back. ‘We are talking about it. We are going to investigate a script. We have a lot of ideas we will cull from. Nobody is writing just yet, but we are compiling our ideas.’"

There were very expensive reshoots and a whole variety of issues that occurred with the very expensive production, so it would have actually been more surprising if Forster was in fact going to return instead of bowing out.

Based on the popular book series from author Max Brooks, the movie is loosely based on the series, but mostly just adopts its name, according to those who have read it.

Who do you think should replace Forster? Let us know in the comments section below!

    I can see him retiring Wolverine after W3 but as stated - HJ is still RIPPED. He does some serious workouts to play Logan and has the body to prove it. If they cast someone younger to play him after W3 then they had better search long and hard because he is one tough act to follow as Logan!

    okay, i took the bait of the Teaser for the new Bond movie, and I am hooked. Bond seems to have a secret link to Spectre, This will be interesting. I love the way the new recycling of Bond stories have developed from the first Craig adaptation and reinventing of the role. Guess I am onboard to continue to be a person that has never missed a Bond movie. From when I first saw Dr. No and From Russia With Love on a double feature in the 60's as a teenager I have been hooked and still am.
