Zack Snyder Moving Forward With ‘Army Of The Dead 2’

Looks like Army of the Dead will be recruiting more zombies.

Zack Snyder is laying the groundwork for a sequel to his hit horror film Army of the Dead, according to The Hollywood Reporter. That movie had a limited theatrical release back in May, and followed that up with a successful run on Netflix.

The proposed sequel will strictly be a Netflix project, part of a first-look deal the filmmaker inked with the streamer this week. Snyder is said to be hunkering down with co-writer Shay Hatten on the follow-up flick.

But horror fans better not hold their collective breath waiting for Army of the Dead 2 (or whatever Snyder calls it). The director has another Netflix film project on the front burner now–the s/f adventure film Rebel Moon.

No details about the sequel’s storyline have yet been leaked, but fans will remember that at least one character in the first film–Omari Hardwick’s Vanderohe–survived the carnage and was last seen on his way to Mexico City. Of course, the last-minute twist revealed that he had been bitten by a zombie, so…

The original film–directed by Snyder from a screenplay he wrote with Hatten and Joby Harold–follows a group of mercenaries who plan a Las Vegas heist in the middle of a zombie apocalypse. The movie stars Dave Bautista, Hiroyuki Sanada, Ella Purnell, Huma Qureshi, Tig Notaro, Ana de la Reguera, Garret Dillahunt and Matthias Schweighofer.
