In this prequel to Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead, small-town bank teller Dieter gets drawn into the adventure of a lifetime when a mysterious woman recruits him to join a crew of Interpol’s most wanted criminals, attempting to heist a sequence of legendary, impossible-to-crack safes across Europe.
Army of Thieves stars Grimme Award winner Matthias Schweighöfer, Nathalie Emmanuel (Games of Thrones, F9), Guz Khan (Turn Up Charlie), Ruby O. Fee, Stuart Martin (Jamestown), Jonathan Cohen (Budapest), Noemie Nakai, Peter Simonischek (Toni Erdmann), and John Bubniak.
Army of Thieves is directed by Zack Snyder from a screenplay by Shay Hatten. Producers are Deborah Snyder, Zack Snyder and Wesley Coller of The Stone Quarry, and Schweighöfer and Dan Maag of PANTALEON Films.
The main movie, which was led by Dave Bautista, made its debut last May and has become one of Netflix’s most-watched original films, with over 72 million households watching it during its first four weeks. Netflix is also currently developing an anime spin-off series titled Army of the Dead: Lost Vegas, which will chronicle the origins of Bautista’s Scott and his rescue crew during the initial outbreak in Vegas.
