JMS World War Z Script Lands Online

This week saw the first footage and the first movie poster for World War Z released.

The zombie film is based on the Max Brooks novel of the same name starring Brad Pitt.

The original script for World War Z was written by J. Michael Straczynksi and has undergone a few re-writes since then.

Now it seems someone went and posted the 2007 JMS World War Z script online.

As the script has gone under so many re-writes, at least three I believe, it might not be at all what will be debuting next year; however, there could still be possible spoilers.

I haven't check it out extensively, but I know a lot of aspiring filmmakers might like to view a script from JMS.

In addition, some fans of the novel have been pretty upset that the new movie doesn't seem to be a direct take from the book.

Is that what JMS intended as well?

Word War Z has a June 21, 2013 release and is directed by Marc Forster, starring Brad Pitt, Matthew Fox, Eric West, James Badge Dale (Iron Man 3), David Morse and Mireille Enos.

Synopsis:

The story revolves around United Nations employee Gerry Lane (Pitt), who traverses the world in a race against time to stop the Zombie pandemic that is toppling armies and governments and threatening to decimate humanity itself. Enos plays Gerry’s wife Karen Lane; Kertesz is his comrade in arms, Segen.
