I officially ship Snyder/Netflix.

Highlights, 'cause paywall:

[Netflix] rolled out “Army of the Dead” in about 600 movie theaters last week (its widest theatrical release yet) ahead of a streaming premiere Friday. But before anyone had even seen the movie, Netflix shot a prequel (“Army of Thieves”) expected later this year, and entered production on an anime series (“Army of the Dead: Lost Vegas”) set for next year. Coming this summer, a virtual-reality experience that pops up in various cities, where ticket buyers can ride a simulated taco truck into zombie-infested Las Vegas on a search-and-rescue mission.

In 2019 Netflix acquired the project from Warner Bros, where Mr. Snyder made movies for some 15 years. “Army” never progressed past the concept stage there, but Netflix fast-tracked the movie. “As quick as you can write it, we’ll do it,” Mr. Stuber recalls telling the director.

Urged to consider “Army of the Dead” offshoots set in other countries, Mr. Snyder’s team came up with one for a character in the movie named Dieter, an off-kilter safecracker played by Matthias Schweighöfer. Though virtually unknown in the U.S., he is a famous actor and filmmaker in Germany. He directed and starred in “Army of Thieves,” which was shot around Europe over two months last fall. The prequel movie features an international cast and a story about robbers who take advantage of the financial disruption caused by America’s zombie problem.
