There's something in the water in Hollywood lately, as we've seen a number of big budget movies get bounced around schedules and delayed for six months or more. One of the biggest is the Brad Pitt-starring 'World War Z,' which had a $175 Million budget and is going in for seven weeks of reshoots. When hiring a script doctor to rewrite the ending, Paramount showed them footage. 52 minutes worth.

With Comic-Con 2012 in full swing (have you checked out our coverage? Do that) we still managed to find and report the most ridiculous stories to hit the news this week. For your consideration: the very best of the worst. Spoiler: Michael Fassbender finally did something to disappoint us.
Here's a fun new joke: How many writers does it take to finish a 'World War Z' script when the film has already completed shooting and the release has been pushed back to next summer? If you answered "all of them," you're probably right.
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?
Saying that this project is in trouble is an understatement. There's something about the overall production of 'World War Z' that just isn't working, which is evident over the latest move Paramount's made on this film. From the looks of this news we only have one word for you: ouch.
