The long-awaited post-apocalyptic film “ Army of the Dead: Las Vegas Invasion ” debuts on Netflix on May 21, and director Zack Snyder is already interested in making a sequel.
The filmmaker revealed the news during an interview with CBR.
When asked if he intends to expand the feature film universe, he made no secret of his excitement, saying:
“Well, absolutely. I don’t know if I can say that. But suffice to say that, yes, I am very excited about the idea. If it was possible, or if anyone was interested … It would be fun to continue the adventures of this universe.
Previously, Snyder had previously told Variety that the feature would get an animated pre-sequence.
The animated series, “Army of the Dead: Lost Vegas”, will focus on the character of Dave Bautista, from the original film. Snyder will be responsible for directing two episodes and Jay Oliva will be the production showrunner.
Additionally, the franchise is set to win another pre-streak, with no title announced, set in another country. The production is described as an “international prequel”.
The new film will be directed by Matthias Schweighöfer and written by Shay Hatten.
Remembering that “Army of the Dead – Invasion of Las Vegas” will have an age rating of over 18 years old.
Consult the announcement:
“Well, well… This is the Snyder Cut we’ve all been waiting for. “Army of the Dead” was rated 18+ due to heavy graphic violence, including bloody scenes, inappropriate language, and sexually-oriented content. “
Shot in Las Vegas, the film had a budget of US $ 70 million.
After a zombie outbreak in Las Vegas, USA, a group of mercenaries make one last bet, venturing into the quarantine zone in an attempt to lead the biggest assault ever.
