8 Jul - After the success of the Netflix movie, "Army of the Dead", Zack Snyder is set to direct another film for the streaming service called, "Rebel Moon".

The upcoming project will be an epic sci-fi fantasy which he has written himself alongside Shay Hatten and Kurt Johnstad. He is also co-producing the movie alongside wife Deborah Snyder and co-producer Wesley Coller.

According to Deadline, the story is set on a peaceful colony on the edge of the galaxy that finds itself threatened by the armies of the tyrannical Regent Balisarius. A young woman with a mysterious past is later dispatched to seek out warriors from neighbouring planets to help them take a stand.

"This is me growing up as an Akira Kurosawa fan, a Star Wars fan. It's my love of sci-fi and a giant adventure. My hope is that this also becomes a massive IP and a universe that can be built out," he said.

The movie will begin filming sometime in 2022.
