Army of Thieves Teaser: Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead Gets a Prequel


Zack Snyder and Netflix are wasting no time in turning Snyder’s recent zombie heist movie Army of the Dead into a full-blown franchise. Before the movie was even released there was already an anime spin-off series and a live-action prequel announced; now this week they have already unveiled the first teaser trailer for the latter. Army of Thieves revolves around safecracker Ludwig Dieter and takes place six years before Army of the Dead. Although the zombie outbreak is just starting, it looks to be a straightforward heist movie with no horror elements at all. Directed by Matthias Schweighöfer (who also plays Dieter), the movie co-stars Nathalie Emmanuel, Guz Khan, Ruby O. Fee, Stuart Martin, Jonathan Cohen, Noemie Nakai, Peter Simonischek and John Bubniak. Army of Thieves arrives on Netflix sometime in late 2021; check out the first trailer below and see what you think.
