It seems Netflix hasn’t had enough Zack Snyder just yet. It was announced today that his next film, Army Of The Dead, will be getting a prequel Film as well as a Series from Netflix. The film will be directed by German actor and star of the current film, Matthias Schweighofer. It will be written by Shay Hatten, co-writer of Army Of The Dead, and John Wick: Parabellum.
The Series will be helmed by none other than acclaimed Director Jay Oliva, known for his many Superhero Animated films. It’ll be titled Army Of The Dead: Lost Vegas and trace the origin story of Dave Bautista’s character, Scott. It’ll also highlight the initial fall of the Vegas Zombie Outbreak and how Scott assembles his crew. Snyder is set to direct two episodes while Dave Bautista, Ana de la Reguera, Tig Notaro, Omari Hardwick, and Ella Purnell will reprise their roles.
Statement from Zack
I’m incredibly excited for the opportunity to partner with Netflix again as we expand the ‘Army of the Dead’ universe. With both an international prequel, as well as exploring the visually dynamic world of animation. It’s been a great collaboration and we are thrilled that Netflix sees this as big of an IP as we do.
What This Means For ZSJL
If you weren’t aware, Zack also has a little indie film coming out next year with HBOMax called Justice League. One of the many avenues I know they’ve been exploring has been Animation. With Snyder teaming up with Oliva once again, it’s only a matter of time before we hear about DC Animated Prequels. With Zack Snyder’s Justice League becoming its own Universe, a Green Lantern prequel would absolutely work.
Can you say more Batfleck? What if Snyder is able to get Ben Affleck to return for voice work? To tell a prequel of his earlier years as the Caped Crusader? With animation, anything is possible. They could even work a Cyborg series into that for HBOMax and have exclusive content in all forms. And if Zack Snyder and Jay Oliva are teaming up for it, expect major things to be happening.
