World War Z facing the Terry Gilliam curse?

'World War Z' starring Brad Pitt has taken forever to get going, but now it seems the film production has hit another snag. Is it facing a Terry Gilliam curse?

The 'haunting tale' of Terry Gilliam's infamous project starring Johnny Depp : 'The Man Who Killed Don Quixote' just shows how film production can go horribly wrong even with the best preparation and crew. The 2002 documentary 'Lost In La Mancha' shows the wrath of nature, injuries, sabotage that made 'The Man who Killed Don Quixote' never to be.

Fast forward to 'World War Z', and it has been reported that both Ed Harris and Matthew Fox have pulled out of the movie. Fox had a scheduling conflict while Ed Harris has yet to reveal why. Sure, they can be re-cast, but with the film already set up over in Malta, finding great talent to replace these two actors in double-quick time is not going to be easy.
