World War Z preparing to start production at Elstree Studios in London Paramount Pictures' World War Z keeps inching towards production with news that director of photography Robert Richardson is currently prepping the movie at Elstree Studios in London. few weeks ago, we reported that Paramount was seeking another financial backer to share the $125 million production cost. A week after that news hit, we reported that David Ellison and his Skydance Productions company were in talks to co-finance World War Z. It isn't known if a deal was actually made between Skydance and Paramount, but with the director of photography already starting his prep work, it seems certain World War Z is moving in the right direction. That report indicated a June production start is being targeted by the filmmakers.

Brad Pitt is attached to star in World War Z, with Marc Forster directing from a screenplay by Matthew Michael Carnahan. Max Brooks wrote the original novel, which follows a group of survivors trying to remain human in the face of a zombie outbreak.
