Zack Snyder changed the game in 2004 with Dawn of the Dead, a film that bucked the trend of lackluster remakes while breaking new ground in the then-evolving zombie subgenre. And that’s why we’re so excited to see his return to horror, Army of the Dead (currently in production).
While exact plot details have been scarce, Snyder recently dished with our friends at WMMR. He didn’t just reveal a bit about what awaits us, he gave a ballpark release date:
“The movie takes place in Las Vegas. A zombie plague hits Vegas, and they’re able to contain the virus to the city – they build a wall out of shipping containers. And then the city falls. And six years later, one of the casino owners hires this group of zombie soldiers to go get his money that he left in a safe in the casino. It’s coming out on Netflix next winter.”
Army of the Dead stars Dave Bautista. Garret Dillahunt, Raúl Castillo, Nora Arnezeder, Matthias Schweighöfer, Samantha Win, and Rich Cetrone.
