LOS ANGELES (Variety.com) – Netflix has released the first teaser for Zack Snyder’s highly anticipated zombie heist film “Army of the Dead”.

In Army Of The Dead, a hero gathers a team to infiltrate the zombie-overrun casino. “This is a full-fledged zombie heist movie, so it’s genre over genre in a great way,” Snyder told Entertainment Weekly. “So you expect pure zombie chaos, and you get that 100%. But you also get these really amazing characters on a fantastic journey. It will surprise people that there is a lot of warmth and real emotion with these great characters.
The project languished in development at Warner Bros., but was eventually picked up by Netflix, which is also developing an untitled film prequel and animated series in this universe.
In addition to making his version of “Justice League” on HBO Max, Snyder recently produced “Wonder Woman 1984” and was a co-writer of “Wonder Woman” in 2017. He is also executive producer of the upcoming “Suicide Squad” movie. , which will begin on August 6.
