Zack Snyder Enlists In Army

Director Zack Snyder (“300”) and wife Deborah Snyder are set to produce “Army of the Dead” at Warner Bros. Pictures reports the trades.

The zombie action-thriller, based on an original story by Snyder, won’t have any narrative relation to Snyder’s 2004 remake of “Dawn of the Dead” despite the similar title and subject matter.

Set in a quarantined Las Vegas in the near future, the story follows a father’s desperate attempts to rescue his daughter fromn a zombie-infested world. The aim is to do a film on a truly epic scale – ie. lots of wide shots of tens of thousands of living corpses.

It’s not sure whether Snyder is considering “Army” as a directing vehicle for himself after he wraps “Watchmen” which begins filming this Summer. Joby Harold (“Awake”) will pen the script to ‘Army’.
