Originally scheduled for release in December of 2012, the feature film adaptation of Max Brooks's World War Z is now scheduled for a summer release next year: June 21, 2013.
Although it would have been nice to see World War Z sooner rather than later, perhaps the film needs more post-production work. That, or maybe Paramount doesn't think audiences want to spend their holidays living out the zombie apocalypse.
World War Z is directed by Marc Forster and stars Brad Pitt.
