[Movies] Marc Forster Talks About The Changed Ending In World War Z
Posted by Joseph Lee on 12.02.2013

In an interview with Empire, director Marc Forster spoke about troubled production of World War Z, including the changed ending of the film. Forster said he was "very, very happy" with the end result at the Camerimge Festival of Cinematography in Poland.

He said: "Basically, originally there was a third act that I thought didn't work. As we were shooting we were discussing it and rewriting and rewriting it."

The original ending saw Brad Pitt and an army of zombie killers going to Moscow for a final battle. The changed ending was a more suspenseful and enclosed encounter in Wales.

Forster added: "The reason I felt it wouldn't work is that by that time you have a certain battle fatigue after Israel. After Israel and the plane crash, trying to trump that and make it even bigger wasn't working in our favor. The problem with a lot of these big movies is you start production and the script isn't finished; we had the same problem with Quantum [Of Solace]. The third act wasn't fully fleshed out, but we had to rush in to meet the release date."

The budget changes helped the cost of shooting the sequences, including a final, pre-credits montage.

Forster said: "I was very happy that we didn't finish the third act with visual effects and everything, because that would've been a huge number, and we used that money to shoot a much simpler ending."
