It turns out that Paramount is halting pre-production on the high-profile sequel to ‘World War Z’, the 2013 hit that starred Brad Pitt.

The follow-up, with David Fincher helming the project, was on its way to a spring or early summer production start in Atlanta, however, budgetary issues seems to have come up.

It is also unclear, whether the project will go back into development or if it is being shelved indefinitely.

The development is the latest obstacle for the sequel, which was put into motion soon after the initial film, adapted from Max Brooks’ novel that looked at a zombie epidemic from a worldwide perspective, grossed USD 540 million worldwide.
