ARMY OF THIEVES Trailer Reveals What We Can Expect From Matthias Schweighöfer's ARMY OF THE DEAD Prequel
Matthias Schweighöfer returns as Army of the Dead's Ludwig Dieter in Netflix's Army of the Dead prequel, Army of Thieves, and we now have the first trailer for the movie. Check it out after the jump...
Army of the Dead introduced us to a lot of different characters, including Matthias Schweighöfer's safecracker, Ludwig Dieter. Even before the movie was released, we knew he would be getting his own prequel, and that made the way Dieter's story ended all the more surprising and disappointing.
Still, the zombie-less Army of Thieves will shed a little more light on what led to this character joining that crew in Las Vegas, and we now have the first trailer for the movie.
"In this prequel to Zack Snyder's Army of the Dead, small-town bank teller Dieter gets drawn into the adventure of a lifetime when a mysterious woman recruits him to join a crew of Interpol’s most wanted criminals," reads the synopsis for Army of Thieves, "attempting to heist a sequence of legendary, impossible-to-crack safes across Europe."
As well as starring, Schweighöfer directs the movie from a screenplay by Shay Hatten, based on a story by Zack Snyder and Shay Hatten.
The rest of the cast includes Nathalie Emmanuel, Ruby O. Fee, Stuart Martin, Guz Khan, and Jonathan Cohen, while Army of Thieves is currently eyeing a Fall 2021 release on Netflix (despite this trailer's release, the streamer has yet to share an official date).
