Hrm. Zack Snyder doing zombie heist flick “Army of the Dead.”

Army of the Dead is described as taking place during “a zombie outbreak in Las Vegas, during which a man assembles a group of mercenaries to take the ultimate gamble, venturing into the quarantined zone to pull off the greatest heist ever attempted.” Assuming one takes seriously the premise*, this doesn’t sound like a bad movie concept. I’m curious as to how Snyder’s going to do it.

Out on Netflix, eventually.

*I don’t mean the premise of zombies, generally, although certainly other people might be forgiven for wanting the era of zombie movies to be over. I speak of the premise that people are willing to handle or buy valuables stolen from a zombie outbreak zone. Or that ‘stealing’ even means anything, anymore. Most zombie movies assume the end of global civilization, if only because otherwise the poor shambling things would get mowed down en masse.

  1. This ‘could’ be good. Most likely not.
    On the one hand, all heist movies assume that you easily have a way of disposing of your ill gotten goods. Even during a semi-apocalypse, this might be difficult.
    Other than cash, what could you steal in Vegas that would make the gamble of being zombiefied worthwhile?
    Plus, slow or fast zombies?
    And if this is taking place during the summer… Damn, the streets of Vegas would not smell too good. Cooking, rotting meat probably does not smell great.

  2. Also, since we are on the subject of zombies: Days Gone was not too bad. It takes a LONG time to get going, but once it does it turns in a pretty good zombie tale that goes against the norm.
    It is odd when a traditional story is not what you were expecting.
