Zack Snyder Has Been Planning Army Of The Dead Since 2007
To best illustrate just how much time has passed since Zack Snyder first started working on Army of the Dead back in 2007, here are all the movies he’s directed since then: Watchmen, Legend of the Guardian: The Owls of Ga’Hoole, Sucker Punch, Man of Steel, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Justice League. CinemaBlend first reported on the upcoming zombie movie back in March 2007, which happened to be not long after the release of 300 (Snyder’s second movie).
Now, this isn’t to say that Zack Snyder has been working on Army of the Dead all hours of the day since he first teased the project 13 years ago, but he has been putting in some work at one point in 2011 but then the project seemed to be dead the following year, which happened to be around the time he was neck-deep into Man of Steel. Nearly 12 years after he started work on Army of the Dead, Snyder officially returned to the project in early 2019.
