World War Z Recruits A New Screen Writer

Not a good sign for the epic zombie war movie of our dreams. The film adaptation of Max Brooks' novel World War Z is getting another writer. J. Michael Straczynski (Babylon 5) is out, swapped for Matthew Michael Carnahan (The Kingdom). This picture just has to be hemorrhaging money by now. Folks, please save some cash for the actual zombie apocalypse, I wanna see Yonkers go down in flames. [Fangoria]

I know that Hollywood doesn't work this way, but can't they just get Max Brooks? I mean from WWZ, to the Audio Books, to the Survival Guide, to the fact that based on his lineage I'm guessing he has a pretty good grasp on screenwriting. Whatever.

And as excited as I am for Yonkers, I'm equally excited to see how they handle (and keep interesting) the final battle where they just sit there and fire off a round every 2 seconds and pile body on body for days on end.
