Drew Goddard Pulls a Save for Brad Pitt’s WORLD WAR Z

Brad Pitt and Paramount Pictures’ film adaptation of Max Brook’s novel, World War Z, has been a troubled one, but a ray of light shone when we found out last month that Damon Lindelof (Prometheus, Lost) would be the one to save the day. Lindelof was to re-work the third act of the film with reshoots supposedly to begin this fall.

According to Deadline, news out of San Diego Comic-Con actually credits fellow Lost writer Drew Goddard (Robopocalypse, The Cabin in the Woods) with the actual re-write. Lindelof reportedly did not have the time to do the scripting and asked Goddard to finish it out. While Goddard wrote most of the re-write of the ending of the film, word is that Paramount may tap yet another writer to polish up the new ending. Rumor is the Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher, The Usual Suspects) may be the scribe the studio has in mind.
