Max Brook Digs The 'World War Z' Script

MTV caught up with author Max Brook to get his thoughts on the 'World War Z' film script. To be directed by Marc Forster the script was written by J. Michael Straczynski but is currently under a rewrite by Matthew Michael Carnahan. Brooks was very impressed with the first draft saying:
I read Straczynski’s first draft, and it was f—ing brilliant. As the book writer I know that’s sacrilege to say, but it really was good. I turned to my wife and said ‘Honey, this is as good as the book. This is gonna be an amazing movie.

You know… the studio comes in and gives their notes and Forster came in and gave his notes. Carnahan was brought in for reasons unbeknownst to me. Maybe he’s doing a polish, maybe he’s doing a top-down rewrite. I know that his draft is supposed to come in in the next few weeks.
