World War Z movie getting script makeover

There is another chapter in the ongoing saga about turning the classic zombie novel World War Z into a motion picture. You would think that writing a script for a movie that's based on a book that has already been written wouldn't be that difficult. However, that apparently hasn't been the case with World War Z, which has already faced a lot of unexpected costs due to millions of dollars worth of reshoots.

The movie, starring Brad Pitt, is now undergoing a bunch of script changes, specifically related to the end of the story. It had been previously reported that Damon Lindelof was being tapped to rewrite the final part of the movie script, but apparently he only came up with a general idea on how to close the story.

It's now been confirmed that Drew Goddard, who co-wrote the horror flick Cabin in the Woods, is the one who's actually bringing Lindelof's ideas to life. It's believed the project has gone way over budget because of various problems both in production and post-production, and it doesn't seem to be getting any better. Hopefully in the end, it will all be worth it.
