World War Z

The highly anticipated movie World War Z has just added a new cast member: Israeli model and actress Mali Levi, according to the Jerusalem Post. 


The movie -- which stars Brad Pitt -- is based on the 2006 best-selling novel of the same name by Max Brooks (son of Mel Brooks). The post-apocalyptic novel is a follow-up to Brook’s previous book, The Zombie Survival Guide. In World War Z, Brooks is an agent for the United Nations who’s responsible for publishing a report following a brutal zombie war that happened a decade earlier. 


In the book, Israel is one of the countries that best dealt with the zombie apocalypse. The Jerusalem Post reports that Levi will be playing a woman who testifies about Israel’s successful techniques for surviving the zombie apocalypse. The article claims that producers for the film -- which will be directed by Marc Foster (Quantum of Solace, Finding Neverland) -- were considering a number of actresses for the role, including Gal Gadot (who can be seen in the box office hit Fast Five). Levi’s acting credits include the hit Israeli soap opera called Our Song and the Israeli version of The Office


World War Z is scheduled for a 2014 release.
