From Bloody Disgusting;

Before he joined the DC Universe, Zack Snyder directed the James Gunn-pennedDawn of the Dead back in 2004, widely considered by many horror fans (yours truly included) to be one of the best horror remakes of all time. In the wake of Dawn, Snyder had been attached to direct another zombie film titled Army of the Dead, but it never materialized at the time.
We bring this up because THR reports tonight that Snyder is finally directing Army of the Dead, which is no longer set up at Warner Bros. but rather Netflix!

The site notes, “The movie will commence shooting this summer with a sizable budget that could reach the $90 million range, say sources.”

There are no handcuffs on me at all with this one,” Snyder told THR tonight. “It will be the most kick-ass, self-aware — but not in a wink-to-the-camera way — balls-to-the-wall zombie freakshow that anyone has ever seen.”

Snyder will direct and also produce through his Stone Quarry, alongside his wife Deborah. Snyder came up with the movie’s story, but it was penned by Joby Harold.

Dammmmn! That sounds awesome! :D

(Why does this have to be Netflix-owned, though? I'll want it on Blu-ray.)

We have gotten Netflix TV series on Blu-ray before... But I don't think they have ever release any of their original films tho.
There has never been any that were big enough hits to warrant it. So there is a chance if there is demand i guess?

It's all depends who owns the distribution rights. When Netflix has 100% ownership, it never appears on physical media. With things like the Marvel shows and House of Cards and The Cloverfield Paradox, the studios still owned distribution rights, so they were allowed to do so after the shows appeared on Netflix for one year. The only true Netflix exclusive to appear on physical media is Stranger Things. I'll cross my fingers, but when Bright and all those Adam Sandler movies haven't received physical releases, I doubt this or Bird Box or any Mike Flanagan film/show will ever see a physical release. :(

@tridon Yeah, I guess I understand why they wouldn't. They want people to subscribe to Netflix and that it is the ONLY place to get their content.
Releasing it on physical media goes against their mission statement.

Yeah, I guess... but they would certainly make a killing if they followed the Limited Run Games model and released a limited run of 2000 copies on their website a year after the streaming release date. Hell, charge $30-$40... collectors would eat it up. Downside to that is that scalpers will eat it up, too.

Bah, I'm never gonna win, am I? :cautious:
