Army of the Dead is one of Zack Snyder’s successful projects on Netflix. Premiered on May 21, 2021, Army of The Dead comes up with another prequel, Army of the Dead: Lost Vegas.
Earlier this year, this franchise also came up with a prequel as well with the title Army of Thieves, released on October 29, 2021. However, not like the Army of the Dead which is a horror zombie thriller, Army of Thieves is more like an action crime movie.
Not only Army of the Dead: Lost Vegas, Zack Snyder has something else in store: another sequel with the title Planet of the Dead.
Army of the Dead: Lost Vegas is said will be entirely different, since this prequel will be in a form of anime series. It is reported will consist of six episodes.
This still will be executively produced by Zack Snyder and his wife Deborah Snyder, with Jay Oliva at the helm, while Shay Hatten will write the anime series.
Basically, Army of the Dead follows the story of a group of people—led by Scott Ward—who go into Las Vegas which has been controlled by some kind of zombie kingdom. The group wants to do a heist and needs to beat a horde of zombies in the process.
