"World War Z" was plagued with production problems, but do you know that the zombie flick became Brad Pitt's biggest blockbuster yet? Worldwide, "World War Z' has sold $535 million worth of box-office tickets, and that became one of the reasons why we're now hearing sequel plans. But originally, "World War Z" was planned as a trilogy but Paramount nixed the idea after all the production drama.
And heck, drama or not, I enjoyed "World War Z" immensely, I even listed it as one of the best of 2013...so far (video below).
In an interview with Variety, Pitt said that they're talking about a possible sequel, and that they have "so many ideas on the table from the time we spent developing this thing and figuring out how the zombie worlds work. [...] We're going to do our best and see what we get out of it. We've got to get the script right first to determine if we go further."
The open-ended conclusion that was rewritten by Damon Lindelof, Drew Goddard and Christopher McQuarrie certainly makes a sequel possible.
