Pitt plays Gerry Lane in this sci-fi action drama directed by Marc Forster. When Lane, a retired U.N. investigator, learns that a highly contagious virus is transforming those who contract it into rampaging maniacs, and that legions of the infected are growing on all continents, he agrees to join his former colleagues in discovering the source of the plague so that his family will be guaranteed safety aboard a ship in the Atlantic Ocean. Co-starring Mireille Enos and Daniella Kertesz. Forrester:
It’s pretty amazing. He’s an iconic actor. He was a great collaborator. I really enjoyed how he handles being an actor on the set, working with the director, and listening. On the other hand once the cameras start rolling he puts on his producer’s hat and he’s able to do both. It’s very impressive.
