World War Z
Marc Forster's Brad Pitt starrer, backed by Paramount, is occupying space at Elstree Studios. Based on the best-selling novel by Max Brooks (son of Mel Brooks and Anne Bancroft), the film chronicles the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse.

47 Ronin
Across town at Shepperton Studios, Keanu Reeves is taking up his sword for this samurai epic from Universal. The film is based on an oft-told Japanese legend about a group of samurai who meticulously plot revenge after the death of their leader.

Prometheus
Michael Fassbender stars opposite Charlize Theron in Fox's closely guarded sci-fi pic, shooting at Pinewood. Plot details are scarce, but the film is based on an original idea by director Ridley Scott and is said to have elements of his sci-fi classic Alien.

Snow White and the Huntsman
In preproduction before shooting at Pinewood, this new spin on the classic fairy tale stars Theron, Kristen Stewart and Thor's Chris Hemsworth. The story finds Hemsworth's character defending Snow White (Stewart) against the Evil Queen (Theron).
