Someone may pay for that Brad Pitt-starring World War Z adaptation after all

Paramount’s last-minute campaign to save its apparently very risky, Brad Pitt-starring, PG-13 adaptation of World War Z appears to be nearing success: Confirming earlier reports, bajillionaire scion David Ellison is said to be swooping in (probably while making plane noises with his mouth—dude loves planes!) and ponying up the cash alongside two other financiers to make the $125 million project happen, thereby saving us from only having maybe 12 other zombie apocalypse movies over the next couple of years. Deadline further elaborates that the studio is in “hot and heavy talks” with Ellison, which we’ll take to mean they’re staggered with prolonged bouts of French kissing. Go get ‘em, Paramount. Don’t be afraid to show him the goods.
