After a long hiatus, it was announced that Zack Snyder was returning to the world of filmmaking to direct and produce Army of the Dead. The news was indeed rejoicing for Snyder’s fanbase as the director chose to make his return by getting back to his horror/zombie routes.
Now a new update comes from Production Weekly’s recent listing which reportedly reveals that Army of the Dead is currently scouting for locations in Las Vegas, Los Angeles and New Mexico. The locations currently being eyed at doesn’t come as a surprise since the movie itself takes place amid a zombie outbreak in Las Vegas. Furthermore, the movie is also said to focus on a heist pulled off by a group of mercenaries so there may be a likely possibility that filming could take place in Casinos as well.
Army of the Dead is expected to begin filming sometime this Summer. Recently, Actor Dave Bautista revealed to Tampa Bay Times that he is part of a Zack Snyder project hinting that it could be none other than the zombie thriller. Pursue News has reached out to Bautista’s rep but is yet to receive a comment.
Army of the Dead will be produced by Zack & Deborah Snyder through their recently rebranded production company, Stone Quarry. Warner Bros. has had the brand in its palm since 2007 when it was first set up. but Netflix has now taken over and has set aside a budget in $90 million range according to THR.
“There are no handcuffs on me at all with this one,” said Snyder to 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,” he added.
Snyder is also responsible for coming up with the story for the zombie thriller and its script is by Joby Harold.
Army of the Dead does not have a release date assigned yet.
