Hungarian police raided a warehouse containing weapons to be used on the set of Brad Pitt's new movie World War Z -- confiscating a large cache of high-powered guns which included AK-47s and sniper rifles.
Police say they found and confiscated the arsenal during a raid at dawn on Monday, reports the AFP.
"The military guns arrived from London on Saturday at Liszt Ferenc International Airport," Janos Hajdu, director of the police's Counter-terrorism Centre, was cited by Hungarian news wire MTI, adding that the aircraft transporting the weapons left the airport right after unloading."
According to Hungarian authorities, the weapons, which were operable, were a "disaster waiting to happen." The firearms were suppose to be non-functioning, but were in fact military-style automatic weapons.
MTV reported, "Pitt — whose Plan B Entertainment is producing the movie set for a December 2012 release — isn't to blame for the prop snafu. "The movie company's employees must have made a mistake bringing the guns in without the Anti-Terrorism Unit's permission."
World War Z, starring Pitt, is based on Max Brooks’ novel about surviving in a world following a zombie apocalypse, and is expected to be released in December.
Pitt was reportedly not present when the raid took place. Hungarian police report they are investigating the incident.
