Before filmmaker Zack Snyder was known for his dark comic book adaptations, he first made a name for himself with a remake of the 1978 horror classic. Dawn of the dead. Now Snyder Is Going Back To His Roots With Upcoming Movie Army of the dead. In an interview, actor Garret Dillahunt explained why he was thrilled to be a part of Army of the dead, which will explore âdifferent ideasâ regarding the zombie genre.
âIt’s really different. Glad to see it too. To have different ideas about zombies, which is refreshing, I think, in a lot of ways. And I know I have to stay that vague. sorry. I had no idea that one of the things would come out now. Next year. But they got away from a lot of the normal zombie cannons, that for some reason everyone adheres to. And you’re like, “Maybe- be that they don’t have to be that way. What if they were that way? Oh, that’s a nice wrinkle. ‘ Zombies are scary. I am going to tell you. Zombies are really fast and scary. ”
The idea of ââzombies being fast and nimble rather than slow and shuffling has already been explored in Snyder’s Dawn of the dead, and it seems Army of the dead will bring even more changes to zombie mythology. Zack Snyder described his new film as a spiritual successor to Dawn of the dead, which will see a group of mercenaries attempt to loot a casino after a zombie plague has swept the planet.
Netflix is ââbetting big on the film, with an animated series and a series of prequels to turn the film into a franchise. Meanwhile, Snyder’s most anticipated upcoming offering will arrive on a rival streaming channel in 2021, when Zack Snyder Justice League finally debuts on HBO Max.
After decades of relegation to the modern horror genre landscape, zombies have seen a resurgence in recent times. Besides the popularity of The walking dead, movies like the land of zombies and Second World War also explored the grim reality of a world plagued by brain-eating monsters, often the product of a highly transmissible alien disease that infects entire communities at once.
In 2020, such a disease is not only possible, but grim reality for the whole world. As such, entertainment analysts speculate that future zombie films made in a post-COVID world will need to change their internal mythology so as not to confuse audiences by getting too close to reality. It will be interesting to see if Army of the dead avoid addressing the realities of a global health emergency as the world experienced firsthand in 2020.
Based on a story by Zack Snyder and a screenplay by Joby Harold, Army of the dead includes Dave Bautista, Garret Dillahunt, Ella Purnell, Omari Hardwick, Raul Castillo, Tig Notaro, Theo Rossi and Ana de la Reguera. The film does not yet have a release date. This news arrives from ComicBook.com.
Producer Hiram Garcia confirms the studio wants The Rock to return for sequels to multiple franchises, including Rampage and San Andreas.
