Mireille Enos has confirmed that she will be reprising her role as Karin Lane in Brad Pitt’s forthcoming World War Z sequel.
The actress played the wife of Pitt’s Gerry Lane – a former UN investigator who attempts to wipe out a zombie pandemic – in the thrilling apocalyptic horror movie from Marc Foster.
Speaking to Digital Spy, Enos revealed: “Yes, I am going to be in it.
“There’s been some shifting [with directors] and so the schedule’s a bit up in the air, but it’s definitely happening, and I get to be in it.
“And Brad Pitt. I haven’t read a script so I literally can’t tease anything. I think [there] was a director in place and that’s now shifted, so it’s a bit up in the air.”
It was reported earlier this year that director Juan Antonio Bayona had dropped of the project due to a scheduling conflict.
The Orphanage’s Bayona has been working on fantasy drama A Monster Calls, starring Sigourney Weaver, Liam Neeson and Felicity Jones. It was also confirmed that he has signed up to direct Jurassic World 2 – swapping the franchise for an even bigger blockbuster.
Enos also takes the lead in ABC’s upcoming crime drama The Catch as glamorous and powerful private investigator Alice Vaughan.
She stars alongside Peter Krause, John Simm and Downton Abbey’s Lesley Nicol in the fast-paced series, created by Jennifer Schuur and produced by Shonda Rhimes.
The Catch premieres on Sky Living in the UK on May 26.
A 2017 release date for World War Z 2 has been set.
Nia Vardalos has joined Shonda Rhimes’ newest drama, The Catch.
According to Deadline, the My Big Fat Greek Wedding star will appear in a recurring role. Although her role is unconfirmed, Vardalos will reportedly play Leah Wells, “a neurotic but formidable counterfeiter.”
The actress previously worked with Rhimes when she guest-starred on Grey’s Anatomy in 2012.
The Catch, which stars Mireille Enos as a private investigator who gets conned by her fiancé (Peter Krause), airs Thursdays at 10/9c on ABC.
