Hot on the heels of this morning's news about actor http://movieweb.com/world-war-z-gets-matthew-fox/Matthew Fox joining World War Z comes some casting info from Deadline. Apparently in addition to Matthew Fox, actor Ed Harris is also being eyed for a role in the adaptation of the Max Brooks novel.
World War Z begins production this month after a long period in which Paramount struggled with the $125 million budget until Skydance's David Ellison stepped into the breach along with another unnamed financier to take some of the burden off the studio. With the expectation that J.J. Abrams won't be able to pull together a Star Trek sequel for summer 2012, World War Z looms as an option for Paramount, as does its sequel to G.I. Joe.
