Annnnnnd so much for the World War Z movie.

There’s a part of me that is kind of glad that I missed the original controversy over the World War Z movie – essentially, that the studio threw out the perfectly good script, original premise, timeline, …and everything else except the title, really.  I’m glad because this way I get to have that horror added to the Liveliest Awfulness that @allahpundit and @Slublog found:

The movie will have fast zombies.



Don’t get me wrong: fast zombies are a great addition to the genre.  28 Days Later? Zombieland? Great stuff.  But fast zombies just doesn’t fit into any part of World War Z, and honestly?  If they’re trying to rope into theaters the people who loved the book, possibly they should consider showing the film version of the stuff that made people love the book?  And if they can’t do that and still make money, well, it’s OK not to make a movie out of a book.  Really.

    If I ever finish my book and a stuido wants to give me money to make a shitty moive, I will take the money all the way to the bank. I’d take all the money up-front however, none of that percentage crap.

  • NotSoBlueStater says:

    Fast zombies is a REALLY bad idea. The whole thing that makes zombies so scary is that they are slow, but you STILL can’t get away.
