Brad Pitt zombie movie needs rewrite

Los Angeles - Brad Pitt's World War Z is set to undergo a script rewrite and extensive reshoots even though filming has ended.

The actor - who is also one of the producers - shot the post-apocalyptic horror film in various locations around Europe last year but Prometheus screenwriter Damon Lindelof has been brought on board to fix some problems with the first cut.

Lindelof is thought to be concentrating on the film's third act which reportedly needs serious restructuring.

Zombie apocalypse

The December 2012 release date has been pushed back to summer 2013 to allow for six to seven weeks of reshoots in September and October.

The movie is based on the 2006 novel by Max Brooks and also stars Mireille Enos, James Badge Daleand Anthony Mackie.

Marc Forster has directed the film.

The reshoots will be a blow to the studio Paramount who had hoped to turn it into a trilogy.

The movie sees Brad portray the role of a United Nations fact-finder and family man who travels around the world to visit survivors of a zombie apocalypse which is referred to as World War Z.

Should the film be turned into a trilogy, it is thought it will take on the same realism of Matt Damon's Bourne series.
