2013's World War Z was deemed a failure by Hollywood insiders prior to the movie's debut; however, they were way off as the Brad Pitt zombie movie went on to be a hit making over $540 million worldwide.

Paramount quickly greenlit a sequel, and now an interesting detail has become known.

Steve Knight, who wrote the Word War Z script, tells IndieWire that the sequel won't have anything to do with the first movie. 

Actually, Knight almost sounds as if the World War Z sequel will be a reboot.

"I thought, 'why not? What fun.' It’s not quite like the other, we're starting with clean slate. When they've signed off we're on," Knight said.

Of course, Knight might not be mean something like a straight reboot, but that it's possible the World War Z sequel won't rely or even mention elements from the first movie.

Knight's comments also seem to question whether or not Brad Pitt will be involved.

Pitt previously stated he would be attached to the film if they got the script right.
