Zack Snyder to make a new version of Battle Beyond The Stars for Netflix

Zack Snyder and Netflix teamed up for Army of The Dead and they are going to be working together on a new sci-fi film called Rebel Moon.

Snyder co-wrote the story with Kurt Johnstad and was originally a Star Wars film that never happened.

The film takes place on a peaceful colony on the edge of the galaxy that finds itself threatened by the armies of the tyrannical Regent Balisarius, they dispatch a young woman with a mysterious past to seek out warriors from neighboring planets to help them take a stand

That definitely seems like the synopsis of Battle Beyond The Stars (which was of course based on The Magnificent Seven which was based on Seven Samurai), or is it just me?

I love the Seven Samurai story and Battle Beyond The Stars was a fun sci-fi take on it.

Don’t get me wrong, I am curious to see what Snyder does with the story and it is interesting that it was written originally to be set in the Star Wars universe.

Snyder had discussed the film over on the Happy Sad Confused Podcast.

We talked about it, but it never…I’ve been working on it, just away from the Star Wars universe, just on my own as a sci-fi thing. It’s still a sci-fi thing, it’s the same story, it’s just kind of – let Star Wars be Star Wars. And the 11-year-old me still wants to make that. Now I just know how to, so maybe we’ll see that someday.
