Recently, I’ve given this film a lot of thought however, and I’ve concluded that Prometheus is actually an attack on militant atheism.
When asked about his involvement with the film, author Max Brooks stated that he had "zero control", but favored a role for Brad Pitt, and expressed approval for Straczynski as screenwriter. Brooks said: "I can't give it away, but Straczynski found a way to tie it all together. The last draft I read was amazing."
An early script was leaked onto the Internet in March 2008. Ain't It Cool News review of the script called it "[not] just a good adaptation of a difficult book [but] a genre-defining piece of work that could well see us all arguing about whether or not a zombie movie qualifies as 'Best Picture' material". The review also noted the film appears stylistically similar to Children of Men, following Gerry Lane as he travels the post-war world and interviews survivors of the zombie war who are "starting to wonder if survival is a victory of any kind."
Vanity Fair contributor Laura M. Holson blamed poor communication between director Marc Forster and 42-year-old star Pitt whose production company Plan B is bankrolling the project.
The well-reviewed zombie thriller “World War Z” (Paramount) was second, with estimated ticket sales of $66 million, a spectacular result that validates the studio’s much-chronicled decision to rework the movie’s ending.
