Filming is underway in Atlantic City on Dawn of the Dead remake director Zack Snyder‘s new zombie movie Army of the Dead, set amid a zombie outbreak in Las Vegas. In the upcoming Netflix film, “a man assembles a group of mercenaries to take the ultimate gamble, venturing into the quarantined zone to pull off the greatest heist ever attempted.”
In a new chat with WMMR, Snyder revealed a bit more about the film’s plot.
“The movie takes place in Las Vegas,” Snyder explained. “A zombie plague hits Vegas, and they’re able to contain the virus to the city – they build a wall out of shipping containers. And then the city falls. And six years later, one of the casino owners hires this group of zombie soldiers to go get his money that he left in a safe in the casino.”
“It’s coming out on Netflix next winter,” he added.
The cast includes Dave Bautista, Ella Purnell, Ana De La Reguera, Theo Rossi, Huma Qureshi, Garret Dillahunt, Omari Hardwick, Chris D’Elia, Hiroyuki Sanada, Raúl Castillo, Nora Arnezeder, Matthias Schweighöfer, Samantha Win and Rich Cetrone.
