Army of the dead 2 is officially under construction. Premiered on Netflix in May, Army of the dead turned out to be a big hit for the streamer as one of their most watched original titles. Weeks after Snyder put together his next film project, Rebel moon, which will also be developed at Netflix, the filmmaker and his Stone Quarry Productions partners Deborah Snyder and Wesley Coller have signed a new first-look deal with the company. Now plans are already advancing on other big Snyder projects for Netflix.

“For us it was so important to find a partnership based on mutual respect,” added Deborah Snyder. “The creative process works best when everyone trusts each other and you can take risks and be creative. For us, we don’t usually play it safe. The content we create is a little more daring. ‘It’s important to have a good partnership and get along. And Netflix has given us a lot of freedom. But they’ve also embraced the idea of trying new things and not necessarily waiting for success before you do. go forward. “
Deborah refers to the faith Netflix has shown in Army of the dead even before its release on the streaming service. Before its release, Army of the Dead already had another prequel movie and even a spin-off animated series ordered from Netflix. Now THR reports that Army of the dead 2 is the next step for Snyder as soon as he finishes his next movie, Rebel moon. He reportedly developed the sequel with the original’s co-writer Shay Hatten.

See him go back to his roots with Army of the dead, which is now one of our most popular movies, and let’s build a world out of those characters with the next one Army of thieves and the animated series, it’s amazing to see. We’ve only scratched the surface of what’s yet to come and create with Zack, Deb, Wes and everyone at Stone Quarry. “
The word is that Rebel moon will begin production in early 2022, and this project is also being considered by Netflix as a film that could launch another franchise with multiple spinoffs. Stone Quarry’s new deal with the streamer will also include an action vehicle for Damon Caro, director of Snyder’s second unit and stunt coordinator on a variety of previous films.
