Netflix dropped the first teaser for Zack Snyder’s “Army of the Dead” Thursday, starring Dave Bautista as the leader of an epic heist through a zombie-ravaged Las Vegas.
In a mashup of “Ocean’s Eleven” and “Dawn of the Dead,” “Army of the Dead” stars Bautista as the head of a team of mercenaries that tries to steal countless millions from a Vegas casino during a zombie invasion. The film was first announced in 2008 as a sequel to Universal’s remake of “Dawn of the Dead,” but spent years in development hell before Netflix picked up the rights in 2019.
Along with Bautista, “Army of the Dead” stars Ella Purnell, Omari Hardwick, Ana De La Reguera, Theo Rossi, Matthias Schweighöfer, Nora Arnezeder, Hiroyuki Sanada, Garret Dillahunt, Tig Notaro, Raúl Castillo, Huma Qureshi, Samantha Win, Richard Cetrone and Michael Cassidy.
Notaro was added into the film in reshoots after original cast member, Chris D’Elia, was cut from the film after principal photography wrapped, due to sexual misconduct allegations.
Snyder directed the film and penned the script with Shay Hatten and Joby Harold based on his own story. Producers include Snyder, his wife Deborah Snyder and Wesley Coller.
“Army of the Dead” launches May 21 on Netflix.
