This is one of six projects that Zack Snyder got coming up. Its way in the early stages, but is scripted by Joby Herald. It will be release under Warner Bros.

Never heard of it before but I'm always up for another zombie flick.

Is this along the line of the evil dead series, Romeros series or something completely different?

He was considering it, now he's doing The Watchmen. The status of Army of the Dead is unknown. Noboby is tied to it as far as I know.

The Watchmen should be pretty cool but I hope that the other movie isn't a dead project now.

I wouldn't expect him getting to it untill 2009 and even then I doubt it.

Immersing oneself in the world of the long-awaited big screen adaptation of Watchman is an enviable, however protracted, duty director Zack Snyder(Dawn of the Dead, 300) committed himself to this year leaving room in his life for not much else. But during this winter's visit to the Vancouver set, we found out progress is being made on the Snyder-produced Army of the Dead.

"We've meeting with directors right now," co-producer and wife Deborah Snyder exclusively tells us. Under their production banner Cruel & Unusual Films and WB." That's a little hard[to do]because we're here[on set]and every day is killer. We want the right person for it. The Script has been turned in to the studio and they're really happy with it, with pretty minimal notes back, so they said , 'Hey', let's get a director.' "

Based on a story by Zack and written by Awake's Joby Harold, "Army" is describe as a picture larger in scale than Snyder's 2004 "Dawn" redux. "Basically, something happened in Vegas and there was this huge outbreak of these zombies that were killing people," Deborah explains."So to contain it they basically contain Vegas. The city is this wasteland with walls around it and all of these zombies are inside. One of our characters goes in there to investigate and gets trapped inside and her father goes in to search for her. He can't do it alone so he gets a group of mercenaries under the guise that there's money still in the casinos, because they don't care about his daughter. There's also a plotline of what's really going on - like the containment isn't so contained and there are cover-ups. We think it's really fun. 'Dawn' was set in a mall and come on, Vegas is the perfect place to set a zombie film and you can have a lot of fun with that!"

Of the films they get phone calls on, Deborah adds Army of the Dead is one that has generated a lot of interest. Currently, the Snyders are seeking a director with experience, but with a "fresh eye." "What's important is tone. Like 'Dawn' has fun but it never makes fun. It's different than the tone of 28 Days Later, those films are super serious. I think 'Dawn' had a little bit more fun with it and we're hoping to have a similar tone in "Army.'"

The next dead movie is Romero's Diary Of The Dead, which hits theaters in the new year.
