The prequel follows safecracker, Ludwig Dieter, played by Matthis Schweighöfer, and is focused on the early days of Dieter’s career at the beginning of the zombie outbreak, six years prior to the events of Army of the Dead. Dieter is hired by a mysterious woman to pull off a heist and sees him partnering with a group of aspiring criminals. Snyder returns as a writer and producer while Schweighöfer directs the film.
Different from Army of the Dead, Snyder’s new film is expected to feature fewer zombies, focusing more on the rom-com and heist elements of Dieter’s adventures. Last week, Snyder took to Twitter to spotlight the film, releasing three never-before-seen posters to tease the prequel. Highlighting the main crew and the timeline of the film, the posters feature taglines such as, “While the zombies took over, one team took advantage,” “Vegas isn’t the only place to win big” and “Before Vegas, one locksmith became a legend.”
