One Cast Member Still Holds Out Hope For ‘World War Z’ Sequel

by Thomas Tuna

Some wars never end.

A sequel to the 2013 box office horror hit World War Z was dropped four years ago due to financial constraints, but one of the film’s stars–Mireille Enos–still believes a follow-up to the zombie flick would be a great idea.

The original thriller–directed by Marc Forster from a screenplay by Matthew Michael Carnahan, Drew Goddard and Damon Lindelof–is based on the 2006 novel of the same name by Max Brooks.

The film stars Brad Pitt as Gerry Lane, a former UN investigator seeking a solution for a sudden zombie apocalypse, with Enos playing his wife Karin, who fights for survival as the infected grow in number.

Enos–in a recent interview with The Wrap–praised the sequel that never was. “The script for the second movie was great.” she said. “I wish the world could get to see it. We really got close to making a sequel.”

But, she added, “one thing and then another happened, and it never got made. But never say never. I still think it would be great.”

The original was a commercial success, raking in more than $540 million on a $190-million budget, but no official word has come down so far about a follow-up film.
