While speaking with TheTampaBayTimes it’s suggested in the article that Guardians of The Galaxy actor Dave Bautista is possibly taking a role in “Zack Snyder’s next project” which is assumed to be Army of The Dead, a horror thriller that is at Netflix.
Last month, it was revealed by TheHollywoodReporter that Zack Snyder would be following up WB’s Justice League with Army of The Dead (budgeted around $90 million) for Netflix seeing him return to his horror roots as he got his big start with Dawn of The Dead. Directed by Zack, the film was penned by Joby Harold with Snyder and Deborah Snyder producing.
The adventure is set amid a zombie outbreak in Las Vegas, during which a man assembles a group of mercenaries to take the ultimate gamble, venturing into the quarantined zone to pull off the greatest heist ever attempted.
Dawn of The Dead is considered one of Zack’s best features so it’ll be interesting to see him take another crack at the horror genre. The film’s success also gave screenwriter James Gunn a larger profile helping eventually land Guardians of The Galaxy.
Dave’s next project is expected to be Denis Villeneuve’s Dune reboot as he’ll be playing Rabban Harkonnen which is set to begin shooting next month in Budapest, Hungary.
Filming on Army of The Dead is expected to begin this summer around the time he could have completed his scenes for Dune.
An official release date for Army of The Dead has yet to be announced.
