Paramount Pictures and Bad Robot have premiered the first trailer for “Overlord,” the upcoming Nazi zombie film that many suspected (and still do) would turn out to be a fourth “Cloverfield” film.
J.J. Abrams produces the project which will be Bad Robot’s first ever R-rated film, and co-hatched the idea with the film’s screenwriter Billy Ray (“Shattered Glass,” “The Hunger Games”). Julius Avery (“Son of a Gun”) helms the film which is set on the eve of D-Day.
A group of American paratroopers are dropped behind enemy lines to carry out a mission crucial to the invasion’s success, but soon begin to realize there is more going on in this Nazi-occupied village than a simple military operation.
Jovan Adepo, Wyatt Russell, Iain de Caestecker, Jacob Anderson, Dominic Applewhite, Pilou Asbaek, John Magaro, Mathilde Ollivier and Bokeem Woodbine co-star in the film.
