Well, we don’t have an exact release date yet — but Snyder has confirmed that Netflix’s plan is to release the flick this winter, which could mean “in time for Halloween.” Principal photography wrapped in October of 2019, so that’s not an unreasonable time frame.
We can’t wait, because not only are talking about mashup of two of our favorite genres with a hell of a kickass cast, but Snyder’s excitement for the project is palpable. In a conversation with The Hollywood Reporter, the director said, “There are no handcuffs on me at all with this one,” going on to explain that after a years-long hiatus from filmmaking, Army of the Dead was just the kind of project he needed to get him pumped to be back in the saddle.
“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,” he explained. “This is the opportunity to find a purely joyful way to express myself though a genre. It will be the most kick-ass, self-aware — but not in a wink-to-the-camera way — balls-to-the-wall zombie freakshow that anyone has ever seen. No one’s ever let me completely loose [like this].”
And that, dear reader, is really all we needed to know. You may want to bookmark this page, because we’ll be updating it with all of the new fir to report on Army of the Dead as soon as it becomes available.
