Thread: Army of the Dead (Zack Snyder!)

    Army of the Dead (Zack Snyder!)

    Quote Quoting THR
    Zack Snyder, who directed 2017's Justice League only to step away from movies to deal with a family tragedy, has signed on to helm Army of the Dead, a zombie horror thriller, for Netflix. Snyder will direct and produce with his partner and wife, Deborah Snyder, via their newly rebranded production company, Stone Quarry. The shingle's Wesley Coller is also producing.

    Snyder also came up with the story for Army, which has a script by Joby Harold. The adventure is set amid a zombie outbreak in Las Vegas, during which a man assembles a group of mercenaries to take the ultimate gamble, venturing into the quarantined zone to pull off the greatest heist ever attempted.

    Well, that's an idea.

    ETA: Oh, yeah. This is also a Netflix thing. I guess they still have plenty of cash to throw around.

    First time I’m excited about a Snyder project in forever. Pulpy genre thing is what he’s good at.

    With how much Snyder loves slo-mo, and how zombies tend to be slow to begin with, I predict we're gonna get a 2 hour movie which sped up to real time would last about 3 minutes.

    But this is Zack Snyder! Famously the Fast Zombie guy**! We may just get a reversal where the zombie are normal speed and we're the slow ones, as if we're ones who are in fact the walking dead, you see?!

    **Unless you want to classify Danny Boyle and his monkey virus victims as zombies, too. Either way, 28 Days Later and Snyder's debut came out within a year of each other.

    Honestly, this seems like the best possible thing he could do at the moment. Something that isn't an IP, that heavily echoes his first and best movie in genre and likely tone as well. Remind everyone what he can do best, and don't stir any unstable fanboy pots in the meantime. After all the guy has been through, I'd much rather see him do something light and fun than The Fountainhead or whatever other big, equally questionable thing he'd been looking to do.

    I suppose I’ll have to get Netflix again when this comes out. Or just borrow someone else’s for a day.
