I can't begin to tell you how excited I am for this movie, since I am a fan of zombie lore, especially movies and comics based on them the Dead films by legendary director George A. Romero and Robert Kirkman's "The Walking Dead" come to mind!). Having a copy of the book in my personal collection, I can tell you right now that it is one of the best fictional zombie stories I've ever had the honor of reading. Influences from Romero's zombie movies, which have themes of social commentary, are present in WWZ, and while I am a bit concerned with how the film adaptation will turn out once it is completed, I have faith it will still be a great movie nonetheless. For now, we can only wait for information and details whenever it arrives online.

World War Z, to be directed by Marc Forster, will be released sometime in 2012.
