World War Z

World War Z, About 100 weapons to be used in Brad Pitt, “World War Z”, the film was confiscated in Hungary, as they had not been properly deactivated, authorities said Tuesday. The weapons included machine guns, rifles and pistols.
The weapons came from London to Budapest Ferenc Liszt, the airport and were discovered Saturday in a tax free zone nearby, Janos Hajdu, director of Hungary’s Countert*rror*sm Center, said. He said he could not confirm they were intended for the film.
“It is possible that all the weapons were brought from the film, but this would not be allowed to Hungarian law,” and that weapons have not been totally disabled and could easily be used to fire live ammunition, Hajdu, said on the radio Neo FM. “This is a very complicated case.”
Hajdu said that Hungary is considered that the weapons will be disabled if the process is “irreversible”, while the seized weapons could be fired even though the screws had been used to cover the end of the barrels.
Gajdos Bela, a supervisor of arms to “World War Z,” said Mafilm, a Hungarian film company based near Budapest, who had taken arms to Hungary, he had the necessary permits, including a detailed list of weapons in question, issued by local police authorities.
“We had all the permits for the weapons being brought,” said Gajdos The Associated Press by telephone. “They were brought exclusively for this film and are the property of a company in England.”
Under British regulations, the weapons were ready to be used with blank ammunition, Gajdos said, while in Hungary the weapons were considered “not changed accordingly.”
Gajdos said he had been questioned by government investigators and his home in Budapest had been thoroughly checked by security forces before dawn on Monday, which also confiscated permits.
Gajdos added that he could not inspect the weapon before police seized them, but would have been checked by him and an expert in forensic Hungary weapons before allowing their use in the film.
Adam Goodman, whose company is the provision of production of “World War Z,” said he had been advised not to comment on the links between weapons and the film seized.
“We’re preparing as planned. We are not changing our schedule,” Goodman told The Associated Press. He added that reports from the media saying the film set had been searched by the police to confiscate the weapons were not “true.”
