World War Z sequel is not quite a reboot

Steven Knight, screenwriter for the upcoming World War Z Sequel announced the new film could be a “clean slate” with the story departing from the original movie.

Could we be looking at a partial reboot of the original story or just a continuation of the story written by Max Brooks about the zombie apocalypse.

This asks the question, is a “clean slate” the new term for a reboot, or have hollywood started to run out of ideas? How many reboots have we had in the last decade, which have been successful and which have flopped without a trace.

After watching “Cinema Sins” I felt they could have done so much more with the film, so maybe the clean slate will deliver that.
