Since Dawn of the Dead was released in 2004, the idea of Army of the Dead has haunted Snyder’s mind. To create an immersive world in which one could play with the rules of the cinematic universe, the director recounts, “I became obsessed with a certain tone and genre related to the zombie genre.
According to Snyder, he and his team are planning to do another version of the Dead’s Army once they finish Dawn of the Dead. The idea finally stayed in a drawer. That is until the director became interested in her again. “Shay [Hatten, screenwriter] came up with this great story, and it turned out crazy. It is thrilling to make a movie of this size.
The final thing Snyder has said he likes most about this project is how it changes how we see zombies. “In this movie, in particular, it was deconstructing what a zombie is and who are the bad guys. The good guys and how you subvert expectations with how you feel about zombies. ”
