Brad Pitt: I Made ‘World War Z’ For My Boys

"Killing Them Softly" New York Screening

Brad Pitt says he made World War Z because of his sons Maddox, 11, Pax, 9, and Knox, 4.

Speaking at the CinemaCon convention on Monday – the actor explained to reporters, “Four years ago I knew nothing about zombies but now I consider myself an expert. This whole thing started because I just wanted to do a film my boys could see before they turned 18, one they liked anyway and they loved zombies. So we settled on Max Brooks’ book called World War Z.”

Pitt – who also raises Zahara, 8, Shiloh, 6, and Vivienne, 4, with Angelina Jolie – also revealed that deciding to do the film was a challenge.

“How do we keep the global spectacular dynamic scope of the book and how do we originate a zombie film that’s been done quite often and really really well?”

The LA Times reports Pitt plays a United Nations employee trying to save his family and the world from a zombie pandemic. He encounters fast-moving zombies on planes, on the crowded streets of Jerusalem and in traffic jams.

Introducing a clip he added, “What you are about to see is our answer to those two questions,” he continued. “We got a little carried away. I think you are going to like this as much as my boys are going to.”

      Where do you get that? He just says he wanted to do a movie his boys could watch. His kids love zombies. I bet Shiloh does too, because she’s awesome like that. (I’m not sure how zombie movies are appropriate for kids but there you go.)

    He has some amazing DNA! He’s a chameleon isn’t he? Changes his hair, and even his body build at will it seems and it’s always all good :) I think maybe he’s saying (w/o saying) that his guys have shown the interest in that kinda of stuff and his daughters haven’t.

    Isn’t Shiloh a tomboy who is allowed/encouraged to dress like her brothers? I would think she would want to see it too.

    My friend’s four-year-old son is obsessed with zombies too. They must be big among the youth of today! x
