World War Z

World War Z hasn’t exactly had an easy go of things.   Rumor has it that Marc Forster (yes, the director who was similarly in over his head with Quantum of Solace) lost control of the production, with budget overruns, constant script rewrites, and ghost direction forcing the film to move from a December 2012 release to a much more distant...
