Screenwriter Damon Lindelof has been brought in do 11th hour rewrites of Paramount’s zombie epic World War Z, based on Max Brook’s bestselling novel of the same name. The blockbuster starring Brad Pitt had already completed principal filming in Europe when its release date was pushed back from December 2012 to June 2013.

Lindelof is charged with rewriting major portions of the film, primarily dealing with problems in the third act. He is best known as the co-creator and executive producer of the hit television series Lost, and was also the writer of the big budget sci-fi screamer Prometheus.

Extensive reshoots of the film are scheduled for later this year.


  1. You forgot that he also wrote Prometheus which came out yesterday. It was pretty good but didn’t live up to my expectations, the director’s cut should be awesome though. Its kinda funny I was just looking up his page on imdb and they haven’t posted his involvement in WWZ yet. I have more faith in it now than I did before. I love Lost and the writing wasn’t bad in Prometheus it was just too fast paced and had almost more of an action feel than horror. It felt like another summer blockbuster than it should’ve if you ask me.

    P.S. There was a zombish character in Prometheus which I wish they would’ve gone more into but only had a short action scene. No flesh eating though 🙁

    • Thanks for the heads up on Prometheus. We added it to the post.

      I caught it on opening day, and liked it a lot. And I agree with the zombie elements. I actually found them a little confusing because they weren’t played up enough – or maybe just not explained well enough for me. But overall thumbs up.
