Pitt's production company, Plan B Entertainment, first secured the rights to World War Z in 2007. (His company won a bidding war for the fights to the film against Leonardo DiCaprio's Appian Way Productions.) 

Brooks received a call in July confirming the A-lister's attachment to the project. He gushed to MTV: "I can't believe how cool Paramount has been to me and these projects, and how cool Plan B has been."

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Mirelle Enos, star of AMC's new crime drama The Killing, will play Pitt's on-screen wife. The film is scheduled to begin shooting in June.
