The Army of Thieves trailer arrived on Saturday at the Netflix TUDUM event online only. Netflix has unveiled the official trailer for the prequel to Zack Snyder’s Heist Zombie movie Army of the Dead from director Matthias Schweighöfer. Zack & Deborah Snyder, Schweighöfer, Nathalie Emmanuel, Stuart Martin, Guz Khan and Ruby O. Fee were all in attendance at TUDUM to present the Army of Thieves trailer.
Schweighöfer played German cracker Ludwig Dieter in Army of the Dead, a role he reprizes here in the prequel that takes place six years before the events of Las Vegas that we saw in the movie Snyder. In Army of Thieves, Ludwig is hired to break into a series of bank vaults across Europe, with mastermind Gwendoline (Emmanuel, from F9) using the distraction zombie ravages are causing everywhere.
In addition to Schweighöfer as Ludwig and Emmanuel as Gwendoline, the cast of Army of Thieves includes Khan (Man Like Mobeen) as Rolph, O. Fee (Polar) as Korina, Martin (Babylon) as Brad Cage, Jonathan Cohen (The Flame) as Delacroix, Noemie Nakai (Tokyo Vice) as Beatrix, John Bubniak (Marvel’s Spider-Man) as Christopher and Peter Simonischek (Toni Erdmann) as an undisclosed role.
Zombies are also expected to feature in Army of Thieves, Snyder previously revealed, although Netflix claims there are no zombies here. No other Army of the Dead character – except Ludwig of Schweighöfer – is expected to appear in Army of Thieves.
Schweighöfer directs Army of Thieves from a screenplay written by Army of the Dead co-writer Shay Hatten, who developed the Army of Thieves story with Snyder. Schweighöfer and Snyder are also producers on Army of Thieves alongside Deborah Snyder and Wesley Coller (of The Stone Quarry Productions) and Dan Maag (of Pantaleon Films).
Army of Thieves is a production of The Stone Quarry and Pantaloen Films for Netflix. Bernhard Jasper (The Break Up Man) is the cinematographer, Alexander Berner (Cloud Atlas) is the editor, and Hans Zimmer and Steve Mazzaro were the composers.
