Zack Snyder will unleash the Army of the Dead


Dawn of the Dead, 2004

Zack Snyder had been heavily involved in the DC Cinematic Universe, but took a break from films to deal with a family tragedy. However, it looks like he will be getting back behind the camera as he will be directing a new zombie action film called Army of the Dead. The project was originally with Warner Bros. but, according to THR, Netflix has now picked it up.

Snyder is no stranger to zombies as he directed the 2004 Dawn of the Dead remake, which I thought was a pretty decent zombie movie. He came up with the story for Army of the Dead, but Joby Harold wrote the script.

The adventure is set amid a zombie outbreak in Las Vegas, during which a man assembles a group of mercenaries to take the ultimate gamble, venturing into the quarantined zone to pull off the greatest heist ever attempted.

Snyder spoke to THR about the film and had this to say:

There are no handcuffs on me at all with this one. I thought this was a good palate cleanser to really dig in with both hands and make something fun and epic and crazy and bonkers in the best possible way.

I love to honour canon and the works of art, but this is the opportunity to find a purely joyful way to express myself through a genre. It will be the most kick-ass, self-aware — but not in a wink-to-the-camera way — balls-to-the-wall zombie freakshow that anyone has ever seen. No one’s ever let me completely loose like this.

I love big action, I love big sequences. My movie brain starts clicking around and I was like, ‘We need to be shooting this now!’ Constructing these sequences really fired me up.

Filming is due to begin this summer.
