Bryan Cranston In Talks to Survive the ‘World War Z’

As anyone who reads my Movie News After Dark column knows, I’m a huge fan of Max Brooks’ book World War Z, and a subsequent propagandaist for the upcoming Marc Forster directed film. I am also, without a doubt, a massive (both physically and emotionally) fan of Breaking Bad and Bryan Cranston, so this particular news is being reported with much adulation. Cranston is currently in negotiations to join Brad Pitt in the story of a UN Postwar committee agent (Pitt) who travels the world gathering the oral history of the great zombie war. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the role Cranston is considering is described as “small but flashy.” Anyone who’s read the book knows that it is filled with vignette stories, each of which has a number of memorable characters. No matter the role, Cranston makes a great addition to this potentially major film event. Consider the fires burning deep within me stoked once again by this project. The only question that remains is whether Cranston will have enough time. He’s currently promoting Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive, and will soon be seen in Disney’s John Carter, Len Wiseman’s Total Recall remake, Ben Affleck’s Argo, Steven Soderbergh’s Contagion, George Lucas’ Red Tails, along with the currently filming fourth season of Breaking Bad. He’s a busy guy, Malcolm’s dad.
