"Deadpool" Sequel in Motion, Screenwriters to Return
There are more zombie tsunamis on the way, and they’re coming courtesy of Steven Knight.
Variety reports that the writer of Eastern Promises, and writer-director of the recent Tom Hardy-starring thriller Locke, has been tapped to pen the screenplay for the World War Z sequel. Brad Pitt will once again star in the post-apocalypse thriller, with The Impossible director J.A. Bayona stepping in behind the lens.
This won’t be Knight and Pitt’s first collaboration, either. Recently, the actor was reported to be in early talks to star in an untitled World War II thriller written by Knight.
