NEW YORK – Brad Pitt only gives interviews with great reluctance and is sure to control the environment.
The only way he would agree to give an interview to Studio Exec was for us to agree that he would be in a helicopter racing through the skyscraper canyons of New York City while our intrepid reporter Chad, clung to a rope ladder that swung vertiginously from the door of the helicopter.
How did you first get involved in World War Z?
HOW DID YOU FIRST GET INVOLVED IN WORLD WAR Z?
Oh, we were in a bidding war for the book, which you know was okay. I think Leo wanted it and we got it. And then we got the guy who ruined the last James Bond film and that was it. We were on our way.
There have been a lot of rumors..?
I can’t hear you.
THERE HAVE BEEN A LOT OF RUMORS ABOUT DIFFICULTIES ON THE SET.
Oh right. Yeah. Well, I love the fragrance and I spoke to Joe Wright and we had some ideas, so yeah I was happy to do it.
NO, I MEANT WORLD WAR Z.
Out of my own head? No, I told you there was a book.
WHAT DO YOU PLAN TO DO NEXT?
Great question Chad, but I think you should hold on with both hands it’s getting hairy. There’s really quite a crosswind here. As for next, well, if this film does well, we have ideas for potentially 23 other films. Just go down from the alphabet. World War X, World War Y etc.
WORLD WAR ETC?
Very funny Chad. How do I unhook this thing.
