This is great news for the folks behind the Army of the Dead franchise. Netflix has Already greenlit a prequel film with Matthias Schweighöfer (The Safe-cracking Dieter) and an animated series called Army of the Dead: Lost Vegas, which follows the character of Dave Bautista through the initial fall of Las Vegas.

Bautista, Ana de la Reguera, Tig Notaro, Omari Hardwick and Ella Purnell will all reprise their roles for the animated series. Snyder is expected to direct two episodes of the series alongside showrunner Jay Oliva, who will also direct two episodes.
