Zack Snyder Sets Return to Directing with a Netflix Zombie Film

Zack Snyder will be behind the camera again with a new zombie horror thriller!

The 52-year-old director will be directing the upcoming movie Army of the Dead for Netflix. This is the first time he’s helming a film since stepping away from Justice League in the middle of post-production. He will produce alongside his wife Deborah Snyder.

Zack handed Justice League over to Joss Whedon after his daughter tragically passed away. He has stayed out of the spotlight since then.

Army of the Dead is set “amid a zombie outbreak in Las Vegas, during which a man assembles a group of mercenaries to take the ultimate gamble, venturing into the quarantined zone to pull off the greatest heist ever attempted,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“There are no handcuffs on me at all with this one,” Zack told the outlet. “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.”
