Director Zack Snyder will be heading back to the director’s seat by helming a new zombie thriller for Netflix. The film, titled Army of the Dead is reportedly centred on a zombie outbreak in Las Vegas, which also involves a group of mercenaries who attempts to pull off a heist. Snyder will direct and produce the film for Netflix.
This marks the first big project for the director following his well-storied departure from Justice League. Interestingly, despite helming several superhero projects back-to-back, Army of the Dead will see Snyder return to his roots so to speak.
The director got his big break in 2004 directing the remake of George A. Romero’s Dawn of the Dead. Principal photography on Army of the Dead will begin later this year. Snyder is also serving as producer on the recently announced Suicide Squad sequel being directed by James Gunn.
