After making it clear that his (original) version of Justice League was the best, Zack Snyder walked away from DECU to pay more attention to his association with Netflix. As a result of this alliance, two of the most viewed films of 2021 emerged, El Army of the Dead and its prequel, The Army of Thieves. As more material is enlisted to expand this universe of robberies and zombies, Zack is firmly working on his new film, Rebel moon, which he has defined as his own version of Star wars Y Seven samurai by Akira Kurosawa when we have the information.
The story of Rebel Moon leads us to a peaceful colony on the edge of the galaxy. This place is under threat from the armies of Regent Balisarius. In search of a solution, the colony sends a young woman with a mysterious past to recruit warriors on neighboring planets to help them fight the ruling tyrant and his armies.
In early November, Netflix confirmed the film’s first star, Sofia Boutella. The talented actress we met at Kingsman: The Secret Service, Atomic Blonde, among other films, will be in charge of the main role, that of the young woman who will recruit the warriors.
To keep expectations high, Zack shared the first conceptual art from Rebel Moon, which shows a dark army marching for a devastated place. These characters could be part of the army of the Regent Balisarius, the main enemy of history.
Accompanying the image Zack wrote: “Concept art for Rebel Moon … we’re in full gear towards principal photography in a few months“.
Regarding the beginning of the filming of the film, rumors suggest that Zack would film in March of next year, in order to have a margin and conclude in August of the same year. Regarding the cast, the director previously commented that Sofia will be joined by some familiar faces from her previous projects, from what we could see from Henry Cavill to Dave Bautista, the possibilities are many.
