The Zack Snyder helmed Army of The Dead hasn’t even officially hit theaters or Netflix yet but that hasn’t stopped the streaming giant from green lighting both an anime series based on the property as well as a prequel flick. This goes to show you that Netflix has a lot of faith in the movie.
The prequel film is called Army Of Thieves and it centers on the character of Dieter which is played by Matthias Schweighöfer. The prequel has already wrapped principal photography and will probably hit late this year or early next.
Netflix has issued an official synopsis for the film which you can read in full below!
Schweighöfer also directed the movie and the cast includes Nathalie Emmanuel as Gwendoline, Guz Khan as Rolph, Ruby O. Fee as Korina, Stuart Martin as Brad Cage, Jonathan Cohen as Delacroix, Noemie Nakai as Beatrix and Peter Simonischek.
The Anime series is called Army of the Dead: Lost Vegas and it will feature the voices of Dave Bautista and other cast members. If the first film does well, expect sequels in the future and from early word of mouth, it’s a cult classic in the making. Netflix is banking on it and eyes a major franchise along with working with Snyder on other projects.
Army of the Dead is releasing a week early on May 14th at all Cinemark theaters before it launches on the streaming site on May 21st.
