Zack Snyder to Direct Army of the Dead for Netflix

The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Zack Snyder is set to return to the director’s chair for the zombie thriller Army of the Dead! Snyder will produce the project with his partner and wife, Deborah Snyder, via their new company Stone Quarry, with plans to release on Netflix.

The plot, which was conceived by Snyder and written by Joby Harold, follows a man who recruits a group of mercenaries to pull off the ultimate heist amidst a zombie apocalypse.

Apparently, Netflix took over the project from Warner Bros. where it had been in development since 2007. Word is the streaming service is sparing no expense with a budget reportedly as high as $90 million, according to the trade.

“There are no handcuffs on me at all with this one,” Snyder told THR. “I thought this was a good palate cleanser to really dig in with both hands and make something fun and epic and crazy and bonkers in the best possible way.”

Snyder’s last zombie pic was also his first — 2004’s Dawn of the Dead starring Sarah Polley, Ving Rhames and Michael Kelly, among others. Since then he has mostly stayed close to the comic book genre with 300, Watchmen, Man of Steel, and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. He also made the action epic Sucker Punch.
