Brad Pitt spotted in Essex chomping down on a Wimpy burger?

The A-lister is filming the sequel to World War Z in UK and supposedly seen in Billericay High Street sampling the local cuisine

Filming for Brad Pitt’s new movie is allegedly taking place at Hanningfield Reservoir, near Basildon, Chelmsford and Brentwood, and sources claim he was seen in the area eating a good old Wimpy burger.


The Twelve Monkeys actor was supposedly spotted with security in tow and three mates. Onlookers claim that he kindly bought a £9.85 smokey BBQ burger with cheese, bacon and chips, a £2.95 cheeseburger and a £4.60 sausage, egg and chips meal for his companions.

Pitt, worth an estimated £87 million, could be filming the sequel to World War Z in the area.

A local fan told The Mirror newspaper: “He’s a fan of the Wimpy doughnuts after having them when he was filming World War Z here a few years ago, but sadly there weren’t any on Tuesday night. He is expected to come back later this week to pick some up.”

No doubt there will be a few admirers hanging around outside Wimpy this week, to see if Pitt turns up for greasy treats.
