From filmmaker Zack Snyder, ARMY OF THE DEAD takes place following a zombie outbreak that has left Las Vegas in ruins and walled off from the rest of the world. When Scott Ward, a displaced Vegas local, former zombie war hero who’s now flipping burgers on the outskirts of the town he now calls home, is approached by casino boss Bly Tanaka, it’s with the ultimate proposition: Break into the zombie-infested quarantine zone to retrieve $200 million sitting in a vault beneath the strip before the city is nuked by the government in 32 hours. Driven by the hope that the payoff could help pave the way to a reconciliation with his estranged daughter Kate, Ward takes on the challenge, assembling a ragtag team of experts for the heist. They include Maria Cruz, an ace mechanic and Ward’s old friend; Vanderohe, a zombie killing machine; Marianne Peters, a cynical helicopter pilot; Mikey Guzman, a go-for-broke influencer and Chambers, his ride-or-die; Martin, the casino’s head of security; a badass warrior known as the Coyote who recruits Burt Cummings, a slimy security guard; and a brilliant German safe cracker named Dieter. Scott finds an unexpected emotional hurdle when Kate joins the expedition to search for Geeta, a mother who’s gone missing inside the city. With a ticking clock, a notoriously impenetrable vault, and a smarter, faster horde of Alpha zombies closing in, only one thing’s for certain in the greatest heist ever attempted: survivors take all.
ARMY OF THE DEAD is directed by Zack Snyder (who also served as director of photography) with a screenplay by Snyder & Shay Hatten and Joby Harold from a story by Snyder. The film is produced by Deborah Snyder, p.g.a.; Wesley Coller, p.g.a.; Zack Snyder, p.g.a. The film also stars Richard Cetrone and Michael Cassidy.
