With a top-notch cast led by Brad Pitt and Mirielle Enos, the cast for Marc Forster’s upcoming film, WORLD WAR Z, the film can’t possibly get any better, right?

Well, according to Deadline, that’s dead wrong.

The outlet is reporting that both Matthew Fox and Ed Harris are currently in talks to join the film, which is Forster’s adaptation of the Max Brooks novel of the same name that “looks back on a global zombie infestation 10 years after the fact.” French actress Julia Levy-Boeken has also joined the film’s cast, which is rounded out by the previously-announced James Badge Dale.

Z will start shooting next month, which is interesting to note since Fox will also be starring in I, ALEX CROSS, a film slated to shoot come August.

Personally, while I’m not the biggest fan of Fox, I think the addition of Harris is a great one, and a welcome one given this film’s plot. He just has a face that was born for a film like this, so it’s nice to see him join. Overall, this is just too good of a cast to not get super excited for the film.
