Zack Snyder is on everyone’s lips for the future release of his version of Justice League. But this is not the only project he has on the horizon, but it is also getting ready for the future premiere of Army of the Dead, whose prequel has already finished filming. It should be remembered that the main production will reach Netflix screens, but it will also do so with an anime series and a live-action prequel with global reach.
Army of the Dead is an action, horror and suspense film that closely follows a group of mercenaries trying to execute a high voltage mission. Never in the history of Las Vegas has something similar been attempted, and the scenery looks chilling. His work in the region will occur after a zombie outbreak occurs, which implies that the team sneaks into an area where a total quarantine has been imposed. Danger is around every corner.
The film Zack Snyder has several familiar faces, among which are the Dave Bautista, Ella Purnell, Ana de la Reguera, Theo Rossi and Huma Qureshi. Also, the film runs on the script co-written between Shay Hatten and Joby Harold, however, the base story is from the famous director.
Through his Twitter account, the filmmaker shared a photograph of the cast to celebrate the end of filming for Army of the Dead: The Prequel . Snyder accompanied the image with a phrase where he appreciates the effort of each of the people, from actors to creatives, for the commitment shown during these months.
“Army of the Dead: The Prequel has finished filming. Thanks to all the cast and crew and to Netflix”, you can read.
It is worth mentioning that Shay Hatten was in charge of writing both the prequel with real actors and the anime series. Without a doubt, it is a universe that aims to become a phenomenon within the streaming platform. After all, zombie-based horror and suspense seems to never go out of style, as the undead also had a strong presence this year.
As part of the end of filming for the Army of the Dead prequel , Snyder himself was in charge of revealing his personal synopsis about the film. The director was more descriptive about the story than the streaming company itself.
“A plague of zombies hits Las Vegas and they can contain the virus in the city by building a wall with storage containers And then the city falls. And 6 years later, one of the casino owners hires this group of zombie soldiers to fetch his money that he left in a safe in the casino with all the risks that this entails, “he said.
It is somewhat strange to talk about the end of the filming of a prequel when the base film has not yet been released. Anyway, pay attention to this universe, because nothing that comes from Snyder’s mind should be taken lightly.

Is Army of the Dead a sequel to Dawn of the Dead?
The concept for Army of the Dead began as a sequel to Zack Snyder’s Dawn of the Dead.
Whether or not the story takes place in the same world as Dawn of the Dead is up to Zack Snyder. Regardless, even if the movie takes place in the same world as Dawn of the Dead, the Army of the Dead plot has nothing to do with the former.
Why did the movie take so long to produce?
Instead of directing the film, Zack Snyder would take on a role as producer. This was because he was working on Watchmen at the time Army of the Dead was announced.
Matthis van Heijningen Jr. was directing the film, but the film was frozen for several years until Netflix revived the project.
Filming began on July 15, 2019 and ended on October 27, 2019.
The start locations span Los Angeles, California and Albuquerque, New Mexico.
