World War Z director Marc Forster recently took a break in production to promote his new movie Machine Gun Preacher, which hits theaters September 23. Take a look at the video interview below where the filmmaker reveals how he tried to keep the spirit of Max Brooks’ zombie novel in his adaptation of World War Z.

“Obviously the book is not written as a narrative. You try to take things from the book, but at the same time you’re changing certain things. I do feel we’re trying to keep it in the spirit of the book because it’s important. There are a lot of fans and people who love the book.

The director also discussed the controversial point of how the zombies actually move in his version of World War Z.
