Even before the release of Zack Snyder's Army of the Dead on Netflix, a prequel film and a spin-off anime series are in development with the streamer.
In a statement, Synder has said, "I’m incredibly excited for the opportunity to partner with Netflix again as we expand the Army of the Dead universe with both an international prequel, as well as exploring the visually dynamic world of animation."
The film, penned by Synder, along with Shay Hatten, is about a heist during a zombie outbreak. It is scheduled for release on Netflix next year. The cast includes Dave Bautista, Huma Qureshi, Matthias Schweighofer, Ella Purnell, Ana de la Reguera, and Garret Dillahunt, among others.
Hatten is also set to write both the prequel and the spin-off.
The prequel will be helmed by Matthias Schweighofer and two episodes of the anime spin-off series will be directed by Synder. The anime series has been titled Army of the Dead: Lost Vegas.
