First G.I. Joe: Retaliation and now World War Z. Boy does Paramount love shuffling movies around and toying with them, hoping to get some sort of product containing actual quality. They last minute pulled the Joe‘s sequel, for a 3D adjustment and re-shoots of vital scenes and now they’ve hired Damon Lindelof to do some massive rewrites on their zombie film World War Z, starring Brad Pitt.
The film was initially slated for a November 2012 release, but got pushed back until June 21st of 2013. A push like that isn’t too worrying, because they haven’t begun the marketing steps of the film, but now THR is saying that Damon Lindelof has been hired to rewrite various scenes that deal with the ending of the film. The film will undergo seven weeks of re-shoots, which is the length some films take to make from start to finish.
Lindelof is most known for his writing work on the Lost ending and his name is also on Prometheus. One of the worst moments in Prometheus is the ending, which I’m not clear if Lindelof wrote or not. I think everyone generally hates the Lost ending.
We should start worrying now…
