Brad Pitt might be gunning for a hit with his upcoming horror drama "World War Z," but the Hungarian government would prefer that he not do it with actual weapons.

According to Us Weekly, a team from Hungary's anti-terrorism department raided one of the film's production warehouses and confiscated 85 fully functional weapons -- the majority of them assault rifles.

According to the magazine, the weapons bore paperwork indicating they were nonfunctional, and it's not yet known who is responsible for the snafu.

The guns were reportedly flown in via private plane Monday. An official for the Hungarian government told Us that they were wrapped in a parcel addressed "from a company to an individual [in Budapest]."

No matter who's to blame, Hungary's anti-terrorism unit is taking the matter seriously.

"Guns like these are highly illegal to transport even if they were used as stage guns, which hopefully they weren't," Hajdu Janos and Zsolt Bodnar, the director and deputy director of Hungary's anti-terrorist force, told the magazine.

Wow! With only those cryptic markings on the parcel, it is absolutely amazing the Hungarian post office could figure out where it was to be delivered. Maybe someone should make a movie about "Hungary's Psychic Mail Carriers"...

PS - Is World War 'Z' a zombie movie?

"Guns like these are highly illegal to transport...

...as opposed to "regular illegal"?

What exactly ARE the classifications of illegalitude? Does it go "sort-of illegal", followed by "regular illegal" and then "highly illegal"? And where does "that's WAAAYY illegal, dude" fit on the scale?

Yes, if I've got the plot right apparently Democrats try to take over the world and all that. They're stopped by shotgun and flame thrower wielding patriots from America. It sounds like a great movie!

Excellent. Homeland Security will be releasing a list soon to distinguish the oft subtle differences.
