Yeah, we'll be seeing this movie.

"Lost" star Matthew Fox is set to take on his first post-Island role in Marc Forster's "World War Z," Deadline reports. Ed Harris is also in talks to join the film that stars Brad Pitt, James Badge Dale and "The Killing's" Mireille Enos.

The film is an adaption of the Max Brooks novel, which looks back on a zombie infestation 10 years later. Production is finally set to begin later this month after Paramount struggled with the $125 million budget. 

The film doesn't have a release date yet, but Paramount is reportedly looking at Summer 2012 since J.J. Abrams will not have the "Star Trek" sequel ready to go.

Fox is also set to star opposite Tyler Perry as a serial killer in Summit Entertainment's "I, Alex Cross."
