Damon Lindelof to Rewrite ‘World War Z’ For Reshoots

A couple of days ago it was reported that Paramount Pictures’ ‘World War Z‘ was not only pushed back from its scheduled release but will go through seven weeks worth of reshoots. That’s already not good for the post apocalyptic movie that’s been already pushed back once. So who’s helping out with saving the flawed script?

Damon Lindelof will be sinking his teeth into the production, that’s who. The ‘Prometheus’ screenwriter has been tapped to rewrite the troubled script, says The Hollywood Reporter. They say the main problem with the script is in the third act, which is what Lindelof will be focusing on. But after the complaints from several film critics about his own third act troubles in Ridley Scott’s ‘Prometheus,’ some are weary as to whether or not Lindelof truly is the right man for the job.

Reshoots are scheduled to begin in the fall and ‘World War Z’ is set to be released on June 21, 2013. The movie is based off the novel by Max Brooks and centers on a United Nations employee who’s on a race against time when the zombie outbreak starts sweeping the world. The film stars Brad Pitt, Mirelle Enos, James Badge Dale and Matthew Fox. The picture is directed by Mar Forster.

Do you think Damon Lindelof is the right man to rewrite ‘World War Z’? Why or why not?
