Brad Pitt said of his involvement in the film - "This whole thing started because I just wanted to do a film that my boys could see before they turned 18 - one that they would like, anyways. And they love a zombie." The nuclear detonation that Brad Pitt observes from the aircraft after departing South Korea is stock footage of Crossroads Baker, an underwater nuclear test conducted by the United States at Bikini Atoll in July, 1946.
Marc Forster states that he prefers the extended, unrated cut of the film. For him it's not just about the additional blood and gore, it's about the overall intensity compared to the PG-13-rated version. Forster says that although he's proud of the theatrical version, he felt a bit "handcuffed" when he was trying to deliver the toned-down PG-13-rated version.
Brad Pitt was most intrigued by the book's geopolitical aspects (what with his then-partner Angelina Jolie being a UN Goodwill Ambassador and all), and his production company Plan B, together with Paramount, spent $1 million on the film rights. However, it soon became clear that much of the geopolitics that Pitt was interested in would have to be dropped if they wanted the story to come together on screen. Furthermore, Pitt's production company, Plan B, had never taken on a project of this size, its experience limited to eclectic, low-budget dramas; their biggest film before this was Eat Pray Love (2010).
