‘Army Of The Dead’ Prequel Has Wrapped Production

Zack Snyder’s Netflix “dead” projects are alive and well.

Not only is Snyder’s flagship Army of the Dead film slated for a 2021 debut on Netflix, but the streamer also has plans for an animated series based on the same premise and a prequel feature film simply titled Army of the Dead: The Prequel.

That prequel, as reported by JoBlo.com, this week wrapped production and is looking forward to a coming-out party on an as-yet-undetermined date on Netflix. Snyder even provided a photo of the cast–which can be seen on this page–that accompanied a tweet he sent to announce the good news. “That’s a wrap on Army of the Dead: The Prequel,” the filmmaker wrote. “Thanks to all the cast and crew and Netflix.”

The sequel–directed by Matthias Schweighoefer from a screenplay by Shay Hatten–stars Schweighoefer, Nathalie Emmanuel, Ruby O’Fee, Stuart Martin and Gustavo Khanage. The storyline, as explained, will follow the adventures of Schweighoefer’s character Ludwig Dieter from Army of the Dead.

Snyder, who serves as a producer of the sequel, said he was “incredibly excited to partner with Netflix as we expand the Army of the Dead Universe with this prequel. It’s been a great collaboration.”

In addition, the anime series that will spinoff from Army of the Dead–called Army of the Dead: Lost Vegas–is now in development. Snyder is expected to direct two episodes of the series, with Jay Oliva in charge as showrunner.
