The budget spent so far is around $125 million; with reshoots the film is expected to cost $200 million.
The huge 200 million budget is absolutely going to kill this thing. NO zombie movie should cost that much. Zombie movies have never been a big genre unlike superhero movies.
A zombie movie has never been a tentpole release either. This one is, which means it has a bigger production budget, a more expensive and far-reaching marketing campaign, a major studio that will ensure wide distribution (Paramount), an A-list director (though Mark Forster may be headed to the B-list unless this is a big hit), and an A-list star (Brad Pitt), plus some notable supporting players (James Badge Dale, Matthew Fox) that wouldn't normally appear in a film like this.
