If we didn’t know better, we’d think this was a news story concocted just to make Brad Pitt’s World War Z movie seem more awesome. Just kidding; what could be more awesome than a zombie apocalypse movie? Literally nothing. Us Weekly reported today that the Moneyball star’s latest movie got raided in Budapest by a SWAT team, after word got out that the production was receiving functional firearms for use on-camera. Oh, also the movie has Brad Pitt in it, which is why all the agents were squealing and giggling when they stormed in.
Hungary’s Anti-Terrorism Unit allegedly removed 85 fully functional guns, which included “automatic, military-style assault rifles” from the film’s warehouse. “We can confirm that weapons were confiscated at an airport,” said unit director Hajdu Janos and deputy director Zsolt Bodnar, adding, “Guns like these are highly illegal to transport even if they were to used as stage guns, which hopefully they weren’t.” We’re sure the extras are relieved at least. Terrifying zombie makeup plus workable firearms sounds like a recipe for disaster.
