The sequel to ‘World War Z’ starts shooting this autumn, with a June 2017 release date. Brad Pitt and his Plan B production company will once again be producing, but no definite word on whether or not Pitt will be reprising his role as Gerry Lane. Screenwriter Steven Knight isn’t giving anything away, but with recent credits like ‘Locke’ and ‘The Hundred Foot Journey’ he’s clearly on a roll. Spanish director J.A. Bayona (The Impossible and The Orphanage) is set to direct the sequel, which has yet to be named.
