If you asked just about anyone you know, right now, what the two biggest film franchises on the planet are, the answer would undoubtedly be either ‘Star Wars’ or the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Although a lot has changed in the fictional TV years since we last saw the cast of ‘Parks and Recreation,’ some things never change, like Leslie’s unflappable determination, and Ron’s stubborn attitude. These two butting heads over their ideals is nothing new, but there’s something kind of unsettling about the cavalier and stoic way with which Ron approaches his business—he’s always been a libertarian with anti-government and pro-capitalist views, but who could imagine a Ron who makes deals with a business like Gryzzl?

It’s been a little while since we’ve gotten an update on the ‘World War Z’ sequel, and it hasn’t been clear if the new film would feature any of the characters from the first installment, or if it would take a page from Max Brooks’ original book and focus on a new story and characters. According to writer Steven Knight, it’s going to be the latter, as he approaches writing the story with a “clean slate.”
