Well, not exactly, but I can't help being pessimistic. Last year, J Michael Stracynski's draft screenplay adaption of Max Brook's excellent book World War Z had critics gushing. Now, we read that this screenplay has been handed to Michael Carnahan for a rewrite. Brooks is positive, citing that the money spent so far will mean that the movie will be made. That's a bit naieve. Many movies go through a lengthy, expensive, pre-production before getting the boot.
I hope the movie does get made. The original article: http://www.joblo.com/new-world-war-z-writer
