According to a plot description, “World War Z” will be a huge departure from the book.

From the plot description

The story revolves around United Nations employee Gerry Lane (Pitt), who traverses the world in a race against time to stop the Zombie pandemic that is toppling armies and governments and threatening to decimate humanity itself. Enos plays Gerry’s wife Karen Lane; Kertesz is his comrade in arms, Segen.

While I was secretly hoping it would have been filmed in the “documentary” style that the book took on, it should have been an inevitability that it would not be a “to the letter” adaptation of the novel. I’ll probably still end up seeing the movie but as a huge fan of the Max Brooks novel, I may not be as enthusiastic about it as I once was. The movie will star Brad Pitt and directorial duties will be provided by Marc Forster.
