So apparently, Rosie Larsen’s death was the best thing that could happen for Mireille Enos’ career. The actress, who’s currently hunting down a murderer as Detective Sarah Linden in AMC’s new terrific drama, The Killing, has officially made the jump to the big screen with a role opposite Brad Pitt in World War Z, the adaptation of Max Brooks’ novel, directed by Marc Forster.
The story is set roughly 10 years after a global zombie epidemic and in the book, many perspectives from around the world give oral histories about what happened. In the film — adapted by Michael Straczynski and Matt Carnahan — Pitt will play a U.N. worker with Enos playing his wife. The picture is set to start shooting in June, but then again, this project has been delayed quite a few times, so, you know, there’s a good chance we’ll experience an actual zombie apocalypse first.
