Brad Pitt's Plan B film company will produce the upcoming zombie horror flick, World War Z for Paramount Pictures.

The film is based on the 2003 book, Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks, which explained in great deadpan detail how to survive a supposedly impending zombie apocalypse. The Hollywood Reporter says World War Z also tackles the zombie genre but is set 10 years after a great global zombie epidemic and is a serious oral history of the future zombie told from many perspectives from around the world.

There's no production schedule yet for World War Z.
