March 23, 2011 - World War Z / studio wants PG-13
Scooped on Wednesday, March 23, 2011
Paramount may be close to letting World War Z go into turnaround if an investor isn't found to shoulder the $125 million dollar price tag for making the zombie picture. While Adam Goodwin, the studio's president, insists that the company wants to make a "big, kick-ass giant movie" from Max Brooks' tome, it needs someone to help shoulder the costs. That's why Paramount is now talking with David Ellison, the man who cut a check to make Mission: Impossible IV with Paramount, and another undisclosed investor, about making an undead movie.
At least Brad Pitt and Marc Forster remain onboard, for the time being.
