World War Z

Talk about averting a crisis: Yesterday, the set of Brad Pitt’s upcoming zombie flick World War Z was raided by a Hungarian SWAT team—because a number of weapons that were to be used as props in the film were still functioning with live ammunition. What?!

According to X17, police seized some 85 guns from the Budapest warehouse where they were being stored. The weapon collection largely consisted of military-style assault rifles—AK-47s, sniper rifles, and so on—most of which hadn’t been properly deactivated for use as props.

Us Weekly provided more details: A source said that the guns entered Budapest accompanied by paperwork describing them as non-functional—which ended up being not the case. Hajdu Janos, the director of Hungary’s Anti-Terrorism Unit, told Us, “This morning a private plane brought guns wrapped in a parcel from a company to an individual [in Budapest].” Added deputy director Zsolt Bodnar, “Guns like this are highly illegal to transport even if they were to be used as stage guns, which hopefully they weren’t.”

X17 also reported that a police spokesperson described the arsenal of weapons as “a disaster waiting to happen,” which is very, very true. As its name not-so-subtly implies, World War Z is a large-scale disaster film about a war between humans and zombies so big that it essentially wipes out life on Earth as we know it. Think of the number of extras involved in such a film. Think of how many of them play zombies. Then think of how many of them play the soldiers shooting down the zombies—and imagine what would happen if they were armed with live, functioning weapons.

Yeah. Not so good.

Though Pitt’s production company, Plan B Entertainment, are the ones producing the film, a source told Us Weekly that Pitt isn’t to blame for the mistake: “The movie company’s employees must have made a mistake bringing the guns in without the Anti-Terrorism Unit’s permission.” The last we heard, Plan B was working with the police to get to the bottom of the problem.

Of course, also according to Us, “Brad is furious” because “the film is already over budget and over schedule”—which, hopefully, is more of an exaggeration than anything else. Of course it sucks when production gets halted due to weird problems like this, but generally I like to think that Brad Pitt has enough of a head on his shoulders to know that if the guns hadn’t been caught, terrible things could have happened. So I’d take that last statement with a grain of salt if I were you.

Besides, in the event of an actual zombie apocalypse, Brad Pitt would probably be a useful guy to have around. Don’t you think?
