Brad Pitt as action hero will certainly excite a lot of people, which, lucky for them, is the role he plays in next summer’s “World War Z,” a zombie apocalypse film adapted from the book of the same title written by Mel Brooks’ son, Matt.
In the film, which had a budget of $125 million by the way, pretty much every country on the planet dismisses the threat of a zombie endemic except for…Israel. This leads to a nationwide quarantine and the closing of its borders to everyone except uninfected Jews and Palestinians.
Israeli actors Noa Bodner (Israel Defense Forces soldier), Gil Cohen-Alloro (IDF general) and Daniella Kertesz (IDF officer) have roles in the film, which is expected to hit theaters next June.
Of course, through the magic of film nothing was actually filmed in Israel, but rather in Malta.
