The dead will walk again–thanks to Zack Snyder and Netflix.
From super-heroes (his recent Zack Snyder’s Justice League remake) to zombies, few genre filmmakers can get fans salivating quite like Snyder. And this week, the first full-length trailer for his next major project–Army of the Dead–finally dropped, as reported by comicbook.com. Check it out on this very page.
Horror News Network first reported on Army of the Dead way back in January 2019, and its premiere on Netflix is now just a little over a month away. The zombie thriller will arrive May 21, carrying high expectations.
Snyder–who made his feature film directorial debut in 2004 with his remake of the 1978 classic Dawn of the Dead–directed and co-wrote Army’s screenplay with Shay Hatten and Joby Harold and produced the film alongside Deborah Snyder and Wesley Coller.
The movie–described as a “spiritual sequel” to Dawn of the Dead–is set during the days following a zombie outbreak in Las Vegas as a band of mercenaries travels through the quarantine zone to pull off an ambitious casino heist.
The ensemble cast includes Dave Bautista, Ella Purnell, Ana De La Reguera, Theo Rossi, Huma Qureshi, Omari Hardwick, Tig Notaro, Samantha Win, Michael Cassidy and Richard Cetrone.
Snyder, in an interview earlier this year, called Army of the Dead a “full-blown zombie heist movie–it’s genre-on-genre in a great way. You expect pure zombie mayhem, but you also get these really amazing characters on a fantastic journey.”
