World War Z, a post-apocalyptic horror movie based on a novel by Max Brooks is in the works and 48-year old actor Brad Pitt is the man to save the world from the spreading zombie epidemic. If you haven’t notice it by now, post apocalypse equals war with the zombies.

Besides his heroic role in a time that starts in the beginning after the end of the world, should have ended, Pitt saved a film extra’s life when hundreds of extras were running down George Square in Glasgow, Scotland.

A woman fell during the scene and Pitt pulled her away from the stampede.

“Lots of people hurt themselves, and Brad came to the rescue of a woman who slipped, ” recalls a witness. “I don’t think she could believe it when Brad picked her up. He did’nt have time to speak to her as it was mid-shoot. But she said afterwards how grateful she was, despite having a badly-grazed knee.”

Other extras received minor injuries as well, which prompted a halt in shooting and a “safety talk”.
