Army Of Thieves, the spin-off of Army Of Dead in more heists but less zombies mode (see not), is available on Netflix.
Zack Snyder produced and left the directing of the film to Matthias Schweighöfer who also played the main character Ludwig Dieter.
What relation with Marion Cotillard ? We explain to you.
For his first role in English, Jonathan Cohen was steeped in doubts. And who better to reassure him than Marion Cotillard.
“In the scenario, Delacroix has always been a French Interpol agent. “Matthias Schweighöffer explained to Filmsactu.”We wondered who we would like to have in the movie and Jonathan was proposed. We called him, we offered him the role and he accepted. I will always remember his arrival. He told me that he had asked Marion Cotillard for advice on playing in English as they are friends. She told him “you will get there”. He arrived on the set saying that he had worked on the scenes and the dialogues with Marion. It was fun to watch. He was always saying “I love Zack Snyder, he’s amazing (with French accent). He’s my producer now.” He was on fire the whole shoot. “
This Army Of The Dead prequel was imagined during the filming of Zack Snyder’s film as the latter told us.
When did the idea for a prequel on Ludwig Dieter come to you? After the shooting of Army Of The Dead?
Zack Snyder: She came to us during the filming. We worked there on weekends. Shay (Hatten, screenwriter) and I were both thinking about it and each day of filming with Matthias inspired us a little more to put this film into action. We discussed it with him and I asked him what he thought about it. He answered “maybe, must seeAs the ideas got more concrete, the excitement was overwhelming.
Will we find Ludwig Dieter and his team in the future? The question was also forced to be asked.
Zack: May be….
In Army Of The Dead 2? With other actors from Army Of Thieves?
Zack: Nothing says that Ludwig Dieter died in Army Of The Dead. We don’t see him die on screen so anything is possible. We already have some great ideas for Army Of The Dead 2 who will be called Planet Of The Dead. And yes it is quite possible that Ludwig Dieter survived the zombies (laughs).
