The film World War Z hits studios this week. It stars Brad Pitt and has had a great deal of controversy surrounding it.
Those of us here in the library are excited to see it, because we have selected the Max Brooks book World War Z as our One Book, One College text for the 2013-2014 academic year. We have heard that the move and the book are quite different, but we still want to see the movie.
If you are interested in the evolution of the film World War Z, you may want to take a look at this article from the June 2013 issue of Vanity Fair, “Brad’s War.” This article discusses how the idea moved from book, to script, to finished film.
