Brad Pitt Says Zombies And Politics Didn't Mix Well In World War Z!

brad pitt says world war z started getting too political

It's not often that you hear "zombies" and "politics" in the same sentence, but apparently there were some major issues keeping the two separate in the upcoming horror flick, World War Z!

In a recent interview, Brad Pitt, who stars in and produces the highly anticipated film, explained that they started shooting in hopes of exploring some new territory:

"At the time, I was really interested in a more political film, using the zombie trope as a kind of Trojan horse for asking, 'What would happen to sociopolitical lines if there was a pandemic like this? Who would be on top? Who would be the powerful countries and who would be the most vulnerable?"

That definitely sounds interesting to us!

However, he went on to explain that it all began to be too much and it started taking away from what makes zombie movies so much fun in the first place:

"We wanted to really explore that, but it was just too much. We got bogged down in it; it was too much to explain. It gutted the fun of what these films are meant to be."

Brad says that they ended up cutting several scenes and ditching some of the politics, but he still claims that this isn't your grandpa's zombie apocalypse movie!

With all of the reshoots and delays that have gone into making World War Z, it probably wasn't a bad idea to just focus on getting the thing done!

Besides, everyone knows that brains are meant for eating in zombie flicks, not thinking! LOLz!

    so, basically, max brook's book was so well written and researched and the stories so well told, that brad decided it was too much for his lack of vision to handle and instead made some absurd assclownery of a picture that I don't know anyone who has read the book, has the wherewithall to see… good luck with that. hopefully this will be forgotten and someone else will make a series out of it and do it right. This picture is a joke.
