Brad Pitt's "World War Z" didn't make it to No. 1 on its opening weekend - Disney/Pixar's "Monsters University" beat it to the top of the box office - but Paramount is still pleased enough to think about a follow-up.
The vice chairman for the studio tells The Hollywood Reporter that Paramount "will turn to developing a sequel."
"World War Z" earned $66 million domestically in its first weekend, which makes it the biggest opening of star Pitt's career. If you add in international box office, "World War Z" walked away from its debut run in theaters with $112 million.
According to THR, Marc Forster's adaptation of Max Brooks' novel was initially envisioned as a trilogy, but those grand plans were scaled down after the project needed a major overhaul, bumping its release date back from December 2012 to June.
But with surprisingly positive reviews, the future looks bright for Pitt's "World War Z," which he also produced.

8 SINCE YOUR WIFE WHO IS A MEAN NUN...I WOULD SUGGEST MUSTERBATION
No, I'm thirteen, and I'm in New Jersey living in conditions that honestly suck!
personally, i liked the book better. It was more spread out globally.
What were you kidding about?
I hope the next one is better than the first one. But knowing my luck with prequels and sequels, it's gonna blow. Marc Forester isn't directing this one.
But where the F is Chuck Norris!!??
I loved this movie the way it is now. But I saw the other ending where Pitt ends up in Moscow. I would liked it if it was that ending instead. Brad Pitt kills F'n zombies in mother Russia!! Nukes, fights, blood!!
I don't like Zombies
i do like Brad Pitt :)
SHE KNEW EVERY SINGLE CALL THAT WAS MADE OUT ON THESE PRIVATE PHONES AND TOLD ME WHO CALLED...YET SHE CAN'T FIGURE OUT IF A FONE CALL IS FAKE OR NOT....DAZ WHY WILL NEVER EVER GO.
Great movie. Best movie I 've seen this year. Going to see it again......
WWZ = D +
The movie was a waste of 2 hours, wanted my hours back in the end. It offered nothing new or fresh, just a retread. Could easily have been another tread of a Mila Jojovich Resident Evil flick, which is often better, and I'd rather look at Mila than Pitt's vacant looks. It would have been a better film most of the time if they had superimposed a lifeless snapshot of Pitt over his scenes, and had his mouth move a la Monty Python. At least then I would have at least had a chuckle. I know now why they had to rewrite and reshoot the ending, and it still failed to deliver. Waste of 2 hours.
ahhh yes easy on the eyes
he's the hottest thing since toast.
he's hot even when he's scruffy...
Who cares about Snowden? This is an arcticle about a zombie film. Love how people on CNN can't control themselves. Go wash the cheetos dust off your fingers and spend some time away from the computer.
brad your hot!
Did you mean Edward Snowden, maybe?
Espionage ACT breach. Snowden is TRAITOR! There is more than meets the eye... He is connected to some organization ouside United States of America. He gets your votes for now but in the end he gets millions of bucks for whistleblowing.. Years from now you will see him retiring in a beautiful mansion in South America / Russia / China.
Some dude who won't make it through the zombie apocalypse when it does happen.
Well, Edward Snowden. That's a good question about Edward Sandow. Because I have no freaking idea
Edward Snowden is not a guy who gets millions of dollars just because he whistleblowing, that would be Andy Samberg. Yes I have no idea what your talking about. I haven't Googled Edward Snowden. Yet . . . . . . . .
