This time, Snyder is looking after the picture as a performer producer. Shay Hatten (Army of the Dead, John Wick III) is in charge of the script.
The prequel will deviate greatly from the zombie apocalypse theme. The plot will unfold in a new direction and focus on the robbery.
According to the official synopsis, a small-town bank clerk finds himself embroiled in the adventure of his life when a mysterious woman recruits him to join Interpol’s most wanted criminals team. A group of thieves will travel across Europe trying to break into safes that are theoretically impossible to open.
The film also stars Natalie Emmanuel, Ruby O. Fee, Stuart Martin, and others.
The release of “Army of Thieves” is expected this fall.
