  8. “You can make a global film, which affects so many countries and affects sort of this worldwide epidemic, but it has, zombies are great metaphors for the times we live in today and that’s what I always find fascinating about them, but then it’s like the walking dead, you know, the unconscious, and the metaphors for them are just really something I was inspired by.” ~ Marc Forster

A lot of people stay out of fear in a job they hate.” ~ Marc Forster

I need to tell the story; I need to find a way to make it happen.” ~ Marc Forster
