If nothing else, at least fans of Max Brooks' book World War Z can be a little more at ease with the idea of a big screen version. AICN reports that they have gotten their hands on an early version of the script for the 'zombie drama' World War Z ... and what's the verdict? According to them, "I love this script. Love every dark, somber, upsetting page of it. This is a horror epic, a serious, sober-minded adult picture waiting to be made, and it's one of the best pieces of screenwriting craft I've encountered in a while." AICN's review also goes into detail about some of the plot for the film, so if you haven't read the book and like to be surprised you might want to avoid reading the whole review.

News of the film first emerged last February, when it was first announced that Brad Pitt's Plan B Productions would produce a feature film. The structure of the novel is a compendium of stories from survivors of a war between the living and the undead. The plot jumps time and space, so it must not have been an easy task to weave all these stories into one narrative. The task fell to J. Michael Straczynski (a comic book writer and a creator of TVs Babylon 5), and it would appear that he has done a bang up job of it.
