ARMY OF THE DEAD Sequel Officially On The Way As Zack Snyder Signs A Huge New Deal With Netflix

Warner Bros. may no longer be interested in working with Zack Snyder, but his Stone Quarry Productions banner has signed an overall deal with Netflix that includes an Army of the Dead sequel. Check it out.

It's become blatantly obvious that Warner Bros. isn't interested in continuing with Zack Snyder's vision for the DC Extended Universe following the release of the Justice League "Snyder Cut." However, he's going to be way too busy to consider doing anything for them, anyway! 

Hot off the news that Army of the Dead was watched by 75 million member accounts worldwide during its first four weeks of release, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that The Stone Quarry Productions, the banner overseen by Zack Snyder, Deborah Snyder, and Wesley Coller, has signed a two-year first-look movie deal with the streaming service. 

He's already working on a sci-fi blockbuster called Rebel Moon for Netflix, while the trade also confirms that he's set to develop an Army of the Dead sequel with the first movie's co-writer, Shay Hatten. Rebel Moon is a property viewed as having sequel and spinoff potential, while Snyder's longtime second unit director and stunt coordinator, Damon Caro, is also set to develop a new action movie.

"My goal and hope are to bring as much quality content as I can and do it on a giant scale," Zack says. "Big projects and big movies."

"For us, it was so important to find a partnership that was based on mutual respect," Deborah adds. "The creative process works best when everybody trusts each other and you can take chances and be creative. For us, we don’t usually play it safe. The content we make is a little bit edgier. And I think it’s important to have a good partnership and hear each other."

"And Netflix has given us a lot of freedom. But they’ve also embraced the idea of trying new things and not necessarily waiting for a success before moving ahead. Zack is really good at world building. We’ve done that with the comics for so long that to do something original is the ultimate challenge and we’re up for that."

It's certainly interesting to think about what Snyder and Netflix can do together, and based on Army of the Dead's success, this feels like a partnership that could be here for a long time to come. After all, that movie has already resulted in a spinoff anime series and zombie-less prequel, so it sounds like the filmmaker will be given the opportunity to stretch the boundaries of his creativity.
