Cinesite To Deliver VFX For World War Z

  • News

Leading vfx house Cinesite has been commissioned to deliver a significant amount of shots on the 2012 Paramount Pictures movie World War Z. Directed by Marc Forster, and starring and produced by Brad Pitt, the film is based on the post-apocalyptic horror novel written by Max Brooks.

Ten years after human victory over a worldwide zombie epidemic referred to as World War Z, Max Brooks (Pitt) scours the world collecting the stories and experiences of those who have survived the conflict that almost eradicated humanity.

Cinesite vfx supervisor Matt Johnson will lead Cinesite's work on the film and will work closely with production visual effects supervisor John Nelson whose credits include The Sorcerer's Apprentice, Iron Man, I, Robot, The Matrix Revolutions and The Matrix Reloaded.

"We're very excited to have been awarded such a significant portion of vfx for this highly anticipated movie," said Antony Hunt, MD of Cinesite. "With our work on Battle: Los Angeles and Generation Kill, we've proven our ability to create scenes of epic destruction and realistic character animation. We can't wait to do it again for World War Z."
