Directed by Matthias Schweighöfer, Army of Thieves will tell the story of Ludwig Dieter, the master of safes who in The Army of the Dead – 78% are recruited to recover money from a casino. But don’t expect to see any more zombies in the movie, as the movie itself Deborah Snyder, producer of the film and wife of the director of the original film, has clarified to Uproxx that we will not see them in this story that belongs more to the robbery genre.
It stands on its own, you can see it because it is the story of our box thief. It is also a very sweet and funny movie. It’s set on that same timeline, but it’s not like a zombie movie. It’s more like The Italian Job, but it takes place in a world where zombies exist in America and are causing instability in banking institutions. They are moving money, which gives the perfect opportunity for a robbery.
Dieter was one of the characters that stood out from the original film. In that film he makes it clear that he had never seen a zombie before that mission and in fact he has many problems fighting them with his bat, one of the weapons he has with him. This leads him to hide behind his new colleague, the character of Omari Hardwick. Unfortunately, we all know that he dies trying to prevent Zeus from reaching the loot.
Outside of this, there are not many details about the plot of Army of Thieves. That is going to change very soon, as Snyder himself (300 – 60%, Watchmen, The Watchmen – 65%, Sucker Punch: Surreal World – 24%) revealed that the film will have its own panel at Comic Con, the remote edition of this year, next July 25. That said through Twitter where he also shared the poster of the production, one similar to the original film, but with the legend “More safes, less zombies.”
