World War Z
By now, we all pretty much know about the struggles the filmmakers had while making “World War Z.” In spite of the fact that the film actually turned out to be a major success, initial reports of its “inevitable failure” hit everyone involved with the film pretty hard. The Hollywood Reporter has a very interesting piece about Brad Pitt’s production company, Plan B (who made the film). The article goes into how criticism of the production of "World War Z" affected the producers involved, mentally, and they delve into how the surprise success of the film, along with the positive festival response of “12 Years a Slave” has left the company feeling pretty good about themselves.

David Slade's last move was "Twilight: Eclipse" but he seems to have run into a few stumbling blocks getting his next film mounted. He had lined up the vampire horror flick "The Last Voyage Of Demeter" but potential star Noomi Rapace cast doubt on the project in the spring over her involvement and not much has been heard about it since. The most high profile gig Slade landed was taking on the reboot of "Daredevil" but that too seems to be in a weird limbo, with no other updates at all since it was first announced. He was also in the mix for "The Wolverine" but we all know how that turned out. Now it looks like he's got an interesting new project coming his way, but too bad it sounds almost exactly like "Drive."
