Brad Pitt has told Variety that he would be up for a sequel to the highly successful 2013 film World War Z.
The actor was promoting his new film, 12 Years a Slave at the Toronto Film festival, and was asked whether a sequel was in the works.
Pitt said, “We’re certainly talking about it, yes. We have so many ideas on the table from the time we spent developing this thing and figuring out how the zombie worlds work.”
World War Z is one of the highest grossing films of this year and it’s Pitt’s most successful movies ever, earning an incredible $533 million at the worldwide box office.
The film is based on the 2006 novel by Max Brooks and was collaboration between Paramount and Plan B productions, which is Brad Pitt’s own company. It is reported that Paramount want to make another feature as they originally thought of as a three-part franchise. “It’s set up for many sequels because the book is so dense with information and historical references, and it’s an international story.”
He also added,” I’m so fond of this film, because there are many interpretations that start arising. And I love that it starts that kind of dialogue, but more than anything, it’s just the most intense thing you’re going to see all summer.”
Pitt’s latest film 12 Years a Slave is set for limited release on October 18th.
