World War Z - How Much Material Was Re-Shot?

Did They Sacrifice a Whole Action Scene at the End

It doesn't seem to be that smart to start filming a movie when the script isn't ready. Men in Black 3 did that and the additional costs were immense but at least many people think that the end result was good. World War Z chose the same path but here, it remains to be seen whether the final product gets similar praise. Details that surfaced from behind the scenes hint at a catastrophe waiting to be released. Especially interesting is that there seem to be a lot of scenes that landed on the cutting room floor.

As the Vanity Fair reports exclusively, 40 minutes of footage were re-shot and seemingly a lot of it went into the final act. Damon Lindelof was hired to save what's left and called the end of the movie incoherent and abrupt. Marc Forster's director's cut had the producers panicking.

Lindelof had two options: find something to improve the final act as it is or at least give it a coherent sense or invest much money and shoot a completely new ending. And we don't talk about the last 5 minutes here. 40 minutes of new footage are a statement. It seems that e.g. a complete battle scene in Moscow with a runtime of 12 minutes was removed from the film (although the article isn't 100% clear here) and replaced by something new. Allegedly this happens after Brad Pitt's character leaves Israel. At the end of June, we'll see how far before the film's ending this scene comes.

World War Z starts in US and UK cinemas on June 21st, 2013.
