Dave Bautista is set to join Zack Snyder’s new zombie heist feature “Army of the Dead” at Netflix.
Shay Hatten and Snyder are penning the script which is set amid a zombie outbreak in Las Vegas. 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.
Snyder will direct and produce with his partner and wife, Deborah Snyder, and with Wesley Coller.
The project is Snyder’s first post-“Justice League” movie and sees him returning to the genre which he broke through with in 2004’s “Dawn of the Dead” remake. Filming begins later this year.
Bautista will next be seen in “Stuber” and “My Spy,” and is currently in production on “Dune”.
