Zack Snyder has -not surprising, considering the figures the original did for the streamer – inked a deal with Netflix to direct a sequel to this year’s “Army of the Dead”.
Snyder, producing partner Deborah Snyder and executive Wesley Coller, has signed a first-look two-year film deal with the streamer. In addition to the “Army” sequel, he’ll helm the recently-announced sci-fi adventure “Rebel Moon” for the platform.
“My goal and hope are to bring as much quality content as I can and do it on a giant scale,” Snyder tells THR. “Big projects and big movies.”
“For us, it was so important to find a partnership that was based on mutual respect,” Deborah Snyder says. “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.”
She adds, “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.”
Snyder achieved similar success for HBO Max earlier in the year with his highly-anticipated director’s cut of “Justice League”. No sequel plans there though.
