There was recently news that Zack Snyder is planning a sequel to zombie thriller Army Of The Dead, but he’s already been expanding on the movie’s universe via an anime spin-off and prequel film Army Of Thieves, which focuses on Matthias Schweighöfer’s Dieter in the time before he headed to undead-infested Vegas. Netflix released the trailer during this weekend’s Comic-Con and you can watch it right now…
With Snyder producing and co-writing the story (Dead‘s Shay Hatten cranked out the actual script), Schweighöfer takes the director’s chair this time, as well as starring.
The story finds the small-town bank teller drawn into the adventure of a lifetime when a mysterious woman recruits him to join a crew of Interpol’s most wanted criminals, attempting to heist a sequence of legendary, impossible-to-crack safes across Europe.
Nathalie Emmanuel, Ruby O. Fee, Stuart Martin, Guz Khan, Jonathan Cohen and Noémie Nakai are all featured, and we’re still waiting to learn exactly when the movie will be on screens – all Netflix is saying for now is an autumn release.
