Hungarian SWAT team raids the set of Brad Pitt's 'World War Z'
A Hungarian SWAT team apparently took the title of Brad Pitt's latest film "World War Z" all too literally, as the country's Anti-Terrorism Unit ordered a raid on a Budapest warehouse on Monday that served as the holding area for 85 fully-functional weapons to be used in the production.
According to reports, the stash of weapons, the majority of which were automatic rifles, entered the country with paperwork stating they were prop guns only, when in reality they are full-scale assault weapons. It is not known at this time who authorized the shipment.
"This morning a private plane brought guns wrapped in a parcel from a company to an individual [in Budapest]," said Hadju Janos and Zsolt Bodnar, officials with the country's anti-terrorism unit, in a statement to US Weekly, which broke the story. "Guns like these are highly illegal to transport even if they were to used as stage guns, which hopefully they weren't."
Based on the bestselling first-person novel by Max Brooks, "World War Z" centers on UN employee Gerry Lane (Pitt), who travels around the world interviewing the survivors of a zombie apocalypse. The film is directed by Marc Forster and also stars Matthew Fox, David Morse and Mireille Enos. Pitt is producing the film through his production shingle, Plan B. It is slated for a December 21, 2012 release.
