Zack Snyder returning to movies with zombie action film

Zack Snyder is all set to make his directorial return with zombie horror thriller, "Army of the Dead" for Netflix.

Snyder, who last directed 2017's "Justice League", withdrew from films to deal with the suicide of his daughter, Autumn in the same year in May.

The filmmaker is also attached to produce the project with his partner and wife, Deborah Snyder, via their newly rebranded production company, Stone Quarry. Wesley Coller is also producing.

Netflix is taking over the project from Warner Bros.

Snyder also came up with the story for "Army", which has a script by Joby Harold.

The adventure is set amid a zombie outbreak in Las Vegas, during which a man assembles a group of mercenaries to take the ultimate gamble, venturing into the quarantined zone to pull off the greatest heist ever attempted.
