Brad Pitt on Vanity Fair Cover June 2013 Issue

Brad Pitt covers June 2013's Vanity Fair.

Brad Pitt covers the June issue of Vanity Fair. Inside the issue, various executives from Paramount, the studio behind his June 20 release, World War Z, talk about their much-publicised production difficulties. Among their troubles were a budget that spiraled to $200 million and having to make the tough decision to reshoot 40 minutes of the film.

Brad doesn't appear to be quoted directly in the piece, but screenwriter Damon Lindelof conveyed the actor's enthusiasm for making World War Z. Damon said, "[Brad] took me through how excited he was when he read the book, what was exciting for him, the geopolitical aspect of it. . . . But when we started working on the script, a lot of that stuff had to fall away for the story to come together. We started shooting the thing before we locked down how it was going to end up, and it didn’t turn out the way we wanted it to. My sense of it was he was taking responsibility." Get the full backstory on the making of World War Z on Vanity Fair's site.
