World War Z – Zombie Attack BTS

Director Marc Forster is currently shooting Max Brooks’ zombie best-seller ‘World War Z’ with Brad Pitt in Glasgow, Scotland. The story revolves around United Nations employee Gerry Lane (Pitt), who traverses the world in a race against time to stop the Zombie pandemic that is toppling armies and governments and threatening to decimate humanity itself.

It seems to me there are some CG effects to be added in this shot but you definitely get a sense that the zombies in this world are fast and when they take a bite out of a human, the transformation is violent and rapid.
