THR reports that Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) could join director Marc Forster's adaptation of World War Z. The report says that Cranston is in negotiations for a small but flashy role, though no other details were given.
Based on Max Brooks' best-selling novel, the movie was adapted by Matthew Michael Carnahan and J. Michael Straczynski, and, depending on what remains from Straczynski's script, we're hoping that Cranstion is playing the part of Paul Radeker, a character described as "an older man with a shaved head" who holds the key to the mystery that Brad Pitt's character is trying to solve. Carnahan may have re-named the role, or done away with it, so it remains to be seen.
Cranston joins Pitt, and fellow AMC actors Mireille Enos, star of The Killing; and James Badge Dale, who appeared in the short-lived AMC series Rubicon.
Production is currently ongoing, with Pitt getting snapped while shooting scenes in Falmouth, Cornwall, UK. CeleBuzz, Splash News Online and Comingsoon grabbed some of the photos, which can be seen below, as well as a description of the shoot.
Feeling the pinch of a cold British summer morning, Brad appeared wrapped up on board the yellow SD Salmoor where most of the filming is taking place. The admiralty salvage vessel was covered in wax and fake icicles plus a hoard of locals that were signed up as extras. The crew set sail to a nearby location and returned banging weapons and hollering for the camera.
