Zack Snyder revealed a first look at the full cast for his upcoming Netflix Zombie movie Army of the Dead on Saturday.
Fans are still chanting for the Zack Snyder cut of Justice League, but the filmmaker moving on to his new project, Army of the Dead. The upcoming Netflix film just revealed its cast and now there’s a first look at the lineup. The photo shows Dave Bautista and the rest of the cast clad in army-style gear and each person can be seen with a weapon. They appear to be in a wasteland-like environment. Here’s a first look at the Army of the Dead cast:
Zack Snyder continues with his tenure of action movies with Army of the Dead. The film will be Snyder’s first time in the director’s chair since Justice League in 2017. Not only will Snyder be directing, but he’s also going to be the cinematographer for the film. The short film Snow Steam Iron is the only other film to credit Zack Snyder for cinematography, so his Netflix project might have a distinct visual style as well.
Back in April, Dave Bautista was cast for the lead role in the film. This will be Bautista and Zack Snyder’s first collaboration together. The two of them have both worked on superhero films but in different universes.
In addition to Army of the Dead, Zack Snyder also expressed interest in adapting the novel The Fountainhead into a movie.
