Well hello there little bit of good news...nice to meet ya! Brevitt is on his Nordic adventure still and waiting for a call when thanks to AICN, I came across this little nugget:
Apparently I'm a bit behind on this development, but great to see an amazing book get a solid treatment. Given that it's in the hands of Plan B and J. Michael Straczynski, I'm actually pretty excited that this adaptation won't suck. The book itself was really good and you should check out Brevitt's World War Z review before going out and buying it.
Am I excited for this - hell ya! Read what Moriarty has to say about the first 50-pages alone. This is shaping up to be a great adaptation - let's hope it stays that way!
