The World War Z film adaptation of the hit book made a lot of money, but let's get real, it was nothing like the fantastic source material. Which is why we're happy that the sequel is going to be a "clean slate"... or maybe we're just cautiously optimistic.

In an interview with Indie Wire, sequel screenwriter Steven Knight (Eastern Promises) revealed that his take would be a total clean slate, whatever that means:

"I thought, 'why not? What fun.' It's not quite like the other, we're starting with clean slate. When they've signed off we're on."

If we had to venture a guess, we'd ponder that the whole thing will have new characters and a new setting and just show the apocalyptic world from another perspective. And then pause for a Pepsi break.
