Director Zack Snyder (Steel man, Dawn of the Dead) has lined up his next movie, and he’s teaming up with Netflix again. The filmmaker should co-write and direct Rebel moon, a new sci-fi feature set on the edge of the galaxy. This serves as Snyder’s follow-up to hit the zombie movie Army of the dead, which was released by Netflix earlier this year.
According to a new report, Zack Snyder is configured to co-write Rebel moon with Shay Hatten and Kurt Johnstad, who previously collaborated with him on Army of the dead and 300, respectively. Snyder will also produce alongside his production partner and wife, Deborah Snyder. Wesley Coller and Eric Newman are also expected to produce, with Sarah Bowen executive producing. A brief connection line for the film was also revealed which reads as follows.
“The story begins when a peaceful colony on the edge of the galaxy is threatened by the armies of a tyrannical regent named Balisarius. Desperate people send a young woman with a mysterious past to search for warriors from neighboring planets to help them provide support. “
This Netflix movie comes from an interesting place. We recently learned that Zack Snyder is developing a Star wars film over a decade ago before Disney bought Lucasfilm. Rebel moon serves as a reorientation of that original idea, turning it into something that will exist outside the confines of a galaxy far, far away. Although the hope is that it can, on its own, become a franchise. Zack Snyder had this to say about it.
“It’s me who grew up as a fan of Star Wars fan Akira Kurosawa. It’s my love of science fiction and a giant adventure. Hopefully this will also become a massive IP and a universe that can be built… I have spent the last two or three years building this universe. Every nook must be painted. I made drawings, I draw constantly and I really cultivate its fertile ground to make this world fully realized. ”
Zack Snyder is known to have directed films such as 300 and Watchmen earlier in his career. He also launched what is now known as DCEU with the 2013 Steel man. Snyder followed up with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League. Earlier this year, HBO Max released Zack Snyder’s movie Justice League, the filmmaker’s original 4-hour vision for the film, after years of fans campaigning to see it. This, coupled with the success of Army of the dead on Netflix, has made 2021 an impressive year for Snyder. The film has been viewed by over 72 million people on the streaming service.
