World War Z movie was an unexpected hit, as the movie made a total of $540 million worldwide at the box office. The zombie movie was based on a 2006 novel with the same title by Max Brooks.
After seeing its huge success at the box office everyone was sure that it will be having a sequel but it’s sad the sequel has been delayed for the past three years due to one or the other reason. Read this article to know if World War Z 2 is happening or not.
Is World War Z 2 Cancelled?
It’s been a long time since filmmakers are planning World War Z 2. The movie was originally scheduled to release in 2017 but that did not happen and since then the only thing we are getting to hear is the delay of production.
The production didn’t even begin in 2017 so everyone knew that the release of the movie won’t happen. After that, it was expected that the producers will start shooting from Autumn 2018 but again it was pushed back as Brad Pitt signed up for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
Another delay was soon followed, this time the reason was Director David Fincher, as he had to work on Mindhunter Season 2. After this, it was said that shooting will begin in June 2019.
Unfortunately, one more delay happened and the news came that Paramount has halted pre-production on the sequel. The Hollywood Reporter suggested that it was down to the fact that China wouldn’t release the original because supernatural stories of zombies are apparently politically sensitive.
As of now, there is no sequel happening for World War Z, we will update you if any development happens.
