With the Snyder Cut underway and a green lit Netflix series, Zack Snyder is making some heavy productions on the digital front. His upcoming Netflix original series, Army of the Dead, will be Zack Snyder’s spiritual successor to his Dawn of The Dead, his remake in 2004 of the George A. Romero classic.

A Zack Snyder original screenplay, much like his movies Sucker Punch or 300: Rise of An Empire, Army of The Dead is the story about a group of mercenaries that head into a zombie-infested Las Vegas to try and pull off the heist of the century. Though little details regarding the upcoming film are known, what is known is that the story had been in developmental hell for over a decade before being resurrected and helmed by its original creator.

Army of The Dead’s cast consists of Tig Notaro, Chris D’Elia, and Dave Bautista. The series is also expected to have an animated prequel.
