World War Z Author Says Movie and Novel Share Title Only

Huffington Post

The upcoming release of World War Z starring Brad Pitt is creating a lot of publicity for its massive budget and the fact that it bears no resemblance to the bestselling novel. The one person least surprised is the book's author, Max Brooks.

Brooks said his novel about a world nearly destroyed by a zombie pandemic, shares the same title as the movie "and that's it." (Cinema, Max Brooks, World War Z)

Shocking...right?!?

No seriously the moment I started to hear about the story line, I knew they blew the story away. It's unfortunate but not terribly surprising given the format of the novel. It would have been best displayed as a TV series since the book is comprised of various short stories recounting survival.

That's somewhat disappointing...
Crazay  +   560d ago
Yep. You ain't wrong about that dude. I was pretty hopeful it might be something awesome but these zombies run...and that's just not OK
RetrospectRealm  +   560d ago
Yeah, I'm a little worried now...
cr33ping_death  +   559d ago
Run? More like sprint through a marathon all the way... I never been a fan of zombies on P.E.D's lol
thorstein  +   560d ago
Well, I hope it is a stellar zombie flick. I won't expect it to be like the book.
CanadianTurtle  +   560d ago
After watching the walking dead, I feel like everything else related to zombies will be pale in comparison
darren_poolies  +   559d ago
Really? The Walking Dead isn't that great.
CanadianTurtle  +   559d ago
Well, maybe not on it's own. But compared to anything else "zombie related," I'd say the Walking Dead is the best zombie fiction out there. (Tv show, not comic)
wishingW3L  +   559d ago
Walking Dead went down the crapper with season 3. 28 Days/Weeks Later to me is the best zombie related anything.
dennett316  +   559d ago
Night, Dawn and Day of the Dead for me. Then Shaun of the Dead.
Hergula  +   560d ago
Well....okay, So it wont be an adaptation?...
TwistedMetal  +   559d ago
people should be happy. new different take on zombies+ brad pitt. you see the zombies in the trailer? there were 100,000's they moved fast it was like uzumaki naruto kajin bushin no jitsu. new fresh zombie movie instead of the regular overused zombie story.
wishingW3L  +   559d ago
based on the trailer it looks like more of the same.
TwistedMetal  +   558d ago
you dont watch zombie movies then. no other zombie movie has had so many zombies move in such a way like that they looked like waves in a ocean.

all other zombie movies people just stand on the roof and zombies just stand at the bottom while in this movie zombies just blitz and climb on top of each other no matter how high a wall is. i actually watched a lot of zombie movies and dont recall seeing the start of the outbreak. most the times its after the outbreak happens they start the movie and do a flashback or some bs. this movie is different otherwise people wouldnt be hating on it.
just-joe  +   559d ago
I could tell just by watching the first trailer.Just like Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter, I'll pass on the movie and stick with the book.
TwistedMetal  +   558d ago
this aint no vampires bro zombies buddy. and there would never be a ocean wave swarm of vampires lol
just-joe  +   558d ago
I was more pertaining on how inaccurate the movie is to the book.
ironfist92  +   559d ago
Heard there was beef between Brad Pitt and the Director, so Im not surprised this film might suck
ceballos77mx  +   559d ago
Damn shame, had high hopes for this one but ill still watch it.

I've read this book about 3 times already and still want to read it again.
jakmckratos  +   559d ago
Dumb. The way they use zombies as human torrents is not cool at all. I know Ive been spoiled with how great WD has been but there's cooler ways to do zombies
TwistedMetal  +   557d ago
theres standard ways to do zombies and this way is different like i said above before someone who has no ability to pay attention to detail thought he was smart or something and tryed to say it looks more of the same lol. he should go back to youtube with his comments.
Feldman9000  +   559d ago
This movie looks horrible
StarWarsFan  +   554d ago
That's not good news to add to the movie's marketing campaign this close to the release.
