Zack Snyder To Revisit Zombie Action in "Army of the Dead"

by | March 26, 2007 | Comments

Fanboys already excited about Zack Snyder‘s upcoming "Watchmen" adaptation have a whole new reason to "heart" the "300" helmer: another zombie movie!!

Although we’re still in the eye of the "300" boxoffice storm, and he already has the next most anticipated Alan Moore graphic novel adaptation on his to-do list, Snyder‘s going for broke and adding a heaping pile of zombie goodness to his plate. It’s name? "Army of the Dead."

Variety reports the project, to be scripted by Joby Harold, is a "zombie action thriller" based on Snyder’s original story: "Set in a quarantined Las Vegas in the not-too-distant future, "Army" revolves around a father who tries to save his daughter from imminent death in a zombie-infested world."

Those savvy sleuths at Variety also asked Snyder if, given his success shooting "300" on green screen, "Army" would go a similar route; too early to say, he implied that it is "likely to borrow some of the same techniques."

It is not known if Snyder will direct the film himself, though one may suspect he’ll be quite busy over the next few years. "Watchmen," based on Alan Moore’s uber-popular anti-superhero graphic novel, is set to begin production this summer for a 2008 opening.

Snyder, of course, is no stranger to the undead, having directed 2004’s successful zombie remake, "Dawn of the Dead."

On a semi-related note, it appears that zombie flicks are all the rage in Hollywood; Variety also reports that actor-director Corbin Bernsen — yes, Roger Dorn from "Major League" — is making his own walking undead movie, entitled "Dead Air," about radio djs trying to alert their listeners to a zombie-creating plague in Los Angeles.
