Posted: 05/21/2015 - 23:45


Paramount has announced a release date for the sequel to Brad Pitt's 2013 smash hit zombie movie World War Z, which will bow on June 9, 2017.

As of right now, WWZ 2 is set to take on Fox's Fantastic Four 2, which has the same release date.

World War Z 2 will have J.A. Bayona serve as director, with Bayona known for episodes of Penny Dreadful and The Impossible. The script is being written by Steven Knight and Max Brooks.

World War Z was initally thought to be doomed to failure amongst the so-called Hollywood "insiders"; however, World War Z went on to become Brad Pitt's best U.S. grossing movie with a total worldwide cume of over $540 million.
