After his version of Justice League and Army of the Dead were released, you'd think that Zack Snyder would be taking some time to wind down but nooo, he's back with a prequel to Army of the Dead, called Army of Thieves. This time, the safecracker, Ludwig Dieter (played by Matthias Schweighöfer) is taking lead in this heist film.
Set during the early stages of the zombie infestation as the financial world is being turned on its head. As the money is being moved around and the world's attention is focused on the issue in Las Vegas, a gang of thieves (a much better collective term than 'army'), recruit Dieter into its ranks for the most-daring bank heist yet.
Produced by Zack Snyder and directed by Schweighöfer as well, the Army of Thieves trailer has all the hallmarks of a heist movie… or is it a zombie movie? Or is it both? What percentage is it a heist or zombie film? We'll find out later this year.
