So has baseball, but that didn't stop Pitt from making MoneyPIT.
The Zombie genre has it's fans. However, I don't think there is enough fans in this world, to constitute spending over 200 million dollars (and counting) on production for this kind of movie.
This would of been better served, as a miniseries on cable.

'World War Z' Rewrites: Damon Lindelof Hired To Fix Ending Of Brad Pitt Film

Hopefully you weren't that excited for "World War Z."
Paramount has brought on "Prometheus" screenwriter Damon Lindelof to retool the Brad Pitt-led adaptation of Max Brooks' famed zombie novel -- with specific focus being placed on the film's third act. That would par for the Hollywood-blockbuster course, except for one small detail: "World War Z" finished filming last year.
THR.com broke the news of Lindelof's hire, while noting that "World War Z" will undergo "significant reshoots" likely starting this fall.
For Paramount, this is the second high-profile film to require major post-production changes. Last month, "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" was moved from its June 29 release date to March 29, 2013. The studio line was that "G.I. Joe" was being retrofitted into 3D to help with overseas revenues, but Deadline.com reported that test audiences were unhappy with Channing Tatum's brief role in the film. His part could be expanded with additional reshoots, but Tatum hadn't heard about any last week at the MTV Movie Awards.
"I don't know. Truly," Tatum said. "I haven't seen the movie. I did my part and then all this stuff is going on, so they haven't come to talk to me about anything. They talk about a lot of stuff; who knows if it's the industry or the actual studio? You never know."
As for "World War Z," the film was initially scheduled to hit theaters on Dec. 21, but was moved to next June earlier this year. That would give director Marc Forster plenty of time to work in the new ending that Lindelof writes, but whether the director gets the chance is certainly up for debate. As Badass Digest writer Devin Faraci notes, "It's hard to believe [he'll] be allowed to keep screwing the movies up in costly overtime."

wow, so pitt had thrown his director under the bus to justify the reason, that the movie turned into unwatchable shitt. his typical modus operandi. that the movie is a dud because pitt forced them to rewrite the whole story to make his role "significant" and his terrible non acting might be the reason can't be mentioned, so he trashed others for it.
