Marc Forster’s epic-sounding zombie epic
World War Z
is looking to add Mireille Enos to its cast list.
The actress has become something of an overnight sensation thanks to her role in AMC’s new series The Killing , in which she plays the show’s lead homicide detective.
World War Z already has Brad Pitt in place to star, and follows the fall-out from a zombie apocalypse as mercenaries, US government officials and Palestinians all attempt to survive.
Enos would play the part of Pitt’s wife, while Pitt himself is playing a U.N. worker. If Enos signs, it’ll be a serious boost to her already on-the-rise profile.
World War Z , based on the book by Max Brooks, is scheduled to begin filming this June across the globe, including shoots in London and Malta.
