Zack Snyder’s Netflix Movie Has Cast Its First Star


Netflix has been lining up more and more big name Hollywood talent to boost up its library of big budget content. One of the streaming services latest projects comes from Zack Snyder. The film will be his first directorial effort since 2017’s Justice League, and it will be a post-apocalyptic zombie movie called Army of the Dead. Not too much is known about the project, but Snyder has found his lead actor in the form of Marvel star Dave Bautista.

According to Deadline, Dave Bautista will headline Army of the Dead for Netflix and Zack Snyder. Not too much is known about his specific role in the film, but the story is set in Las Vegas amid a zombie outbreak, and a man assembles a team of mercenaries to pull of a spectacular heist. One would assume that Bautista will play said man. I’m not sure why a heist needs to be pulled when zombies are a thing, but we’ll find out soon enough.

Army of the Dead was scripted by Shay Hatten and Zach Snyder. Snyder is also producing the film alongside his wife, Deborah Snyder.
