I gather that the 'black list' name is a swipe at the McCarthy-era blacklist. The new one is desireable to be placed on.

Yes, Brad Pitt's Plan B Entertainment commissioned it and Paramount is listed as the distributor. This is what JMS said in his latest year-end roundup post

Paramount is still looking for an a-list director for World War Z, and
the moment they find one who says yes, that will go into production.
These are solid production offers.
