At the Very Least, If It Ever Gets Made, ‘World War Z’ Will Look Incredible

Like most human beings, I long for the moment when the lights will lower in the theater, and the title screen for World War Z will appear out of the darkness. It’s a tough adaptation to envision, but it’s also brimming with potential and zombies eating people’s faces.

Just like the real zombie apocalypse, this flick has had some trouble getting started, but with potential financing in place, it looks like the production has hired a cinematographer. And they shot for the top. According to Bleeding Cool, the movie is moving forward, and Robert Richardson has been brought on to act as DP. The Oscar-winning Richardson, who directed photography for Platoon, A Few Good Men, Kill Bill, Inglourious Basterds, Shutter Island and many others, is a hell of a choice.

So we know that, if this is true, the film will look good no matter what. Hopefully it’s all true, and Marc Forster will be side by side with Richardson, battling zombies for a summer shoot.
