Considering that the zombie genre worked exceptionally well for Woody Harrelson, it could turn out just as positive for Brad Pitt, who has agreed to star in Paramount's bigscreen adaptation of Max Brooks' post-apocalyptic tome World War Z.

Brad Pitt for World War Z

Besides starring, Pitt's banner, Plan B, will be on board to produce. Brooks recently alerted MTV at SDCC that Paramount could be looking to make a franchise or possible trilogy, and the first film will likely arrive some time in 2012.

In World War Z, Brooks -- son of Mel Brooks and Anne Bancroft -- tells the tale of a researcher (Pitt) for the U.N. Postwar Commission who interviews survivors of a decade-long war against zombies from all over the world in order to put together a post-mortem on the war, which destroyed every country around the globe.

Marc Forster will direct off a script by J. Michael Straczynski, which was recently polished and rewritten by Matthew Michael Carnahan.
