Brad Pitt's latest horror film, "World War Z," just got a little too real.
On Monday, a SWAT team from Hungary's anti-terrorism department raided one of the production warehouses for the upcoming big budget flick and confiscated 85 fully functional weapons — the majority of which were automatic assault rifles — that had arrived in Budapest via private plane with paperwork indicating that they were non-functional.
"We can confirm that weapons were confiscated at an airport," Hajdu Janos and Zsolt Bodnar, the director and deputy director of Hungary's Anti-Terrorism Unit, stated.
According to The Wrap, it's not yet known who is responsible for the mix-up, but, according to a source, the star himself isn't to blame for the prop problem. "The movie company's employees must have made a mistake bringing the guns in without the Anti-Terrorism Unit's permission." The source continued, "Guns like these are highly illegal to transport even if they were to used as stage guns, which hopefully they weren't." You can say that again.
Even though Pitt's not on the hook for the mix-up, word on the street is that "the film is already over budget and over schedule," and "Brad is furious."
