Will we see a World War Z 2?
The fate of the highly anticipated sequel, World War Z 2, has been uncertain since it was officially put on hold in 2019 due to budgetary issues. Despite the fervent hopes of fans, the project remains stuck in pre-production, encountering obstacles and delays along the way.
Regrettably, it seems that the movie will continue to be mired in limbo for the foreseeable future, as several factors have conspired to prevent it from moving forward. Nevertheless, there is still a glimmer of hope that World War Z 2 will eventually be revived, though it may be a long and arduous journey before that happens.
Marc Forster, while speaking to The Digital Fix also left the fans saddened with his update on the next installment. He said, “In regard to World War Z 2 – I don’t think that sequel is coming anytime soon.” Unfortunately, with both Paramount and Forster stepping back from the sequel, horror movie fans of World War Z are currently out of luck.
