Army of the Dead Filming Begins and More Cast Members Revealed

-

Netflix has announced that Army of the Dead filming has begun in Albuquerque, New Mexico and once they wrap there, the production will move to a casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

In addition to the Army of the Dead filming announcement, the streaming service has also revealed additional cast members. Omari Hardwick (Power, Sorry to Bother You), Chris D’Elia (You, Man on Fire), Hiroyuki Sanada (Avengers: Endgame, Westworld, Minamata), Garret Dillahunt (Widows, No Country for Old Men), Matthias Schweighöfer (You Are Wanted, Resistance), Raúl Castillo (We the Animals, Vida), Nora Arnezeder (Maniac, Mozart in the Jungle), Samantha Win (Arrow, Justice League), and Rich Cetrone (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Solo: A Star Wars Story) have joined the previously-announced Dave Bautista, Ella Purnell, Ana De La Reguera, Theo Rossi and Huma Qureshi in the movie.

In Army of the Dead, a group of mercenaries take the ultimate gamble in Las Vegas: venturing into a quarantine zone following a zombie outbreak to pull off the greatest heist ever attempted.

Snyder directs and also produces the zombie horror thriller with his partner and wife, Deborah Snyder, via their rebranded production company, Stone Quarry. The company’s Wesley Coller is also producing. Snyder came up with the story for the film, which has a script by Joby Harold and Zack Snyder & Shay Hatten.

“There are no handcuffs on me at all with this one,” Snyder said previously. “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. I love to honor canon and the works of art, but this is the opportunity to find a purely joyful way to express myself though a genre. It will be the most kick-ass, self-aware — but not in a wink-to-the-camera way — balls-to-the-wall zombie freakshow that anyone has ever seen. No one’s ever let me completely loose [like this].”




Snyder launched his feature directorial career with the hit 2004 film Dawn of the Dead. He has since directed such high-profile pics as 300WatchmenMan of Steel, and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
