Brad Pitt is in Malta shooting the zombie flick World War Z. Malta, in this case, doubles up as Jerusalem, but is of course much easier, safer, and technologically adept to shoot in than the strife-torn Jerusalem.
Pitt didn’t exactly look like he was working hard or working up a sweat for that matter, but Brad Pitt appeared to be enjoying the ride as he was driven around whilst shooting scenes for his new movie, World War Z.
Casually dressed in a shirt and scarf, Brad struck a serious pose today in Birgu, Malta as he rode in the passenger side of an old Jeep along with a co-star. As the car zoomed through the streets, onlookers in Birgu stopped to get a glance of Pitt and the film crew.
The actor has several taxing scenes in the zombie film and there is a stuntman on hand to help get the job done. The stand-in wore an exact copy of the star’s wardrobe and even replicated his stubble. He was also seen getting a wig fitted for a wig in the same style as Brad’s shoulder-length mane. Brad’s stuntman shares a near identical frame as the movie star, so viewers will likely be unable to tell the difference on the cinema screens.
The superstar actor plays Max Brooks who scours the world collecting the stories and experiences of those who have survived ten years after the human victory over the world wide Zombie epidemic, referred to as World War Z. The film, directed by Marc Foster, also stars Mireille Enos and Matthew Fox. It is scheduled to be released sometime in 2012.
