Army of the Dead is a Netflix original movie directed by Zach Snyder. It stars Dave Bautista as Scott Ward.
The plot of film surrounds a group of mercenaries that enters a walled-off Las Vegas (siz years after a zombie outbreak) in order to attempt a heist at Scott Ward's old casino.
The release date was supposed to be in Winter 2020-2021, but that was before actor Chris D'Elia was accused of sexually harassing underage girl in June 2020.
On August 14, 2020, Deadline reported that D'Elia will be replaced with Tig Notaro. There will be reshoots on location, as well as with CGI and green screens to make the replacement as seamless as possible.
A crew member we are contact with said that the release date wouldn't be affected by the recasting, but it does sound like it will be a 2021 date.
Prequel & Anime Series
On September 3rd, 2020, Variety reported that a prequel to the film was in the works, as well as an anime series. The film will be directed by one of the actors, Matthias Schweighöfer, as it follows his character through the story. Dubbed "Army of the Dead: Lost Vegas," it tells Bautista's backstory & chronicles the reaction of the crew to the zombie invasion of Las Vegas. Two of the anime episodes will be directed by Snyder.

The mercenaries' costumes include a lot of tactical gear mixed with civilian clothing.
