Netflix dropped the official teaser for Army of Thieves on Monday, July 26.
Army of Thieves, the prequel to Army of the Dead, is a romantic comedy heist film that takes place in the beginning of the massive zombie outbreak.
The teaser shows Ludwig Dieter (Matthias Schweighöfer) in his early days of safecracking, prior to the events of Army of the Dead. He is later recruited by a smart, mysterious woman (Nathalie Emmanuel) to join a crew of most wanted criminals for an attempted heist across Europe.
Included in the cast are Guz Khan (Man Like Mobeen) as Rolf, Stuart Martin (Miss Scarlet and the Duke) as Brad Cage, Jonathan Cohen (Budapest) as Delacroix, and Rube Fee (Polar) as Korina, among others.
Army of Thieves is directed by lead star Schweighöfer, with screenplay by Shay Hatten. Zack and Deborah Snyder, Wesley Coller, and Dan Maag are the producers.
Earlier in July, Justice League director Zack Snyder also shared the first-look photos from the film.
Army of Thieves will premiere on Netflix this year, with an exact release date yet to be announced. – with reports from Angelica Burlaza/Rappler.com
