Anyone know anything about making movies? I'm talking ragtag here, like at best two handheld camcorders. As for quality, I'll make it as real as possible (I can be very persuasive), definitely better than most homemade zombie movies on Youtube.
World War Z, the post-apocalyptic horror novel written by Max Brooks, may well get a movie adaptation in a not too distant future: Paramount Pictures who won a bidding war back in 2006 for the feature film rights have renewed their option for a World War Z movie. So we're confident that the project will enter in production sooner than later. The film is currently listed for a release in 2012 on IMDb. Director Marc Forster is for now attached to the film and Actor Brad Pitt (he's already on board as producer) could well be part of the cast.

I read both of Max Brooks books "Zombie survival guide" and "World War Z".
They are brilliant and i recommend them to everyone.
If you enjoy those two you can also read "THE OFFICIAL ZOMBIE HANDBOOK (UK): The Ministry of Zombies",which is in the same spirit as the above.
Who knows, we might need them

If you get the chance, read some of Brooks' short stories, also set during World War Z. They are all excellent, and each one has a neat little mind twist to it, focusing on some tangent of what such a war would mean, that you may not have necessarily thought of before....
