The helmer of the upcoming Netflix zombie action flick – a certain Mr Zack Snyder – has been chatting about Army Of The Dead.
It’s no secret that Zack Snyder has endured something of a difficult relationship with Warner Bros. From his painful dismissal from 2017’s Justice League, as well as being sidelined as the impresario of the DCEU, through to having certain creative choices in Zack Snyder’s Justice League curtailed by the studio (such as his wish to include Green Lantern rather than the Martian Manhunter in the film), Snyder has an interesting history with the studio.
Now, in promotional duties for his upcoming zombie action film debuting on Netflix, Army Of The Dead, Snyder has cheekily referenced those woes, when talking about the production of the film, stating “I didn’t have to fight Netflix. There are no other cuts of this movie. You don’t have to see a bastardised version – you get to see the awesome version first.”
It might be a bit of a dig, but when it comes to the 2017 theatrical cut of Justice League, that seems to be way things are at the moment. Can hardly blame him.
Snyder also talked about what makes Army Of The Dead a slightly different zombie movie, stating “[we] have two categories of zombies in the movie, alphas and then normal shamblers. [If] you see a zombie movie, normal shamblers, it’s like a normal zombie, they kind of move slowly. And then our alphas, which are an evolved version of zombies and zombies that have taken another step, and they’re much… they’re fast, and we kind of treat them kind of like almost like wolves or like, they’re not… they’re sentient, you know what I mean? They kind of, they fight [in] packs and they kind of have a pack mentality.”
We’re certainly looking forward to seeing Snyder return to the zombie genre. Are you? Let us know in the comments below. The film is set to release on Netflix on May 21st.
