Brad Pitt revealed his son gets shot at one point during his upcoming horror flick World War Z.
The actor’s son Maddox, 11, reportedly plays a zombie in the film. Since Pitt’s character is trying to find a way to stop the undead from taking over the world, it’s no surprise his son meets a gruesome demise.
According to People, Brad Pitt’s kids absolutely adore scary movies.
“They love these kinds of things, and that’s the thing that first drew me to it,” the actor explained.
Maddox was apparently so excited about the project that he ended up landing a small role in World War Z. Brad Pitt said his son will play a zombie in the movie.
“He’s got a small piece in it. He’s a zombie who then gets shot. I don’t know what that says about my parenting!” Pitt told the publication.
Worst Previews reports Maddox had to shave his mohawk in order to play one of the undead in director Marc Forster’s adaptation of Max Brooks’ acclaimed novel. However, Pitt’s son apparently didn’t mind parting with his haircut.
Maddox isn’t the only Pitt-Jolie kid who is getting ready to make their first big screen appearance. Vivienne Jolie-Pitt, 4, is slated to make her film debut in Angelina Jolie’s Maleficent. The movie is expected to bow in theaters next year.
After a long and troubled production, Forster’s World War Z will finally arrive in theaters this Friday (June 21). Pitt stars as a United Nations employee who finds himself running around the world in order to prevent a zombie apocalypse. Judging from the trailer, he’s really not that good at his job.
In addition to Pitt, the movie stars Mireille Enos, Daniella Kertesz, James Badge Dale, Matthew Fox, and David Morse. Plus a ton of people as zombies, of course.
