Brad Pitt is considering shooting his zombie blockbuster World War Z in the Cornish town of Falmouth, according to the Press Association. Officials in the popular seaside destination are discussing the logistics of the Hollywood star bringing his movie to Cornwall in August 2011.
Some scenes have already been shot in Malta, but Pitt and Paramount Pictures are said to be particularly interested in shooting a specific segment on a boat off the Cornish coast. Reports also suggest the actor, who is producing the movie, will also film some scenes in Glasgow. Richard Gates, Falmouth's town manager, told the Western Morning News he has been in discussions with the film crew about locations, saying, "This is a major coup for Falmouth and we're pulling out all the stops to prepare for the influx of crew and cast", adding, "We've been working closely behind the scenes with Paramount Pictures and are working hard with regards to the necessary planning and permissions".
World War Z is based on Max Brooks' 2006 novel 'World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War'. Brad Pitt plays a journalist collecting stories from those who have survived the brutal conflict between humans and zombies.
