Watched by over 75 million users, the blockbuster movie was speculated to be getting a sequel, however, the news has now been officially confirmed. Heeding the fans' request, Zack Snyder will return to helm the sequel and also co-write it.

Army of the Dead gets a sequel

The story of a group of people venturing into a zombie-infested land to commit the biggest heist became the biggest hit on Netflix. Following the release of the movie, several fans demanded a sequel from the director of the movie Zack Snyder. While a spin-off series titled Army of Thieves is all set to release on the platform, fans are now elated after The Hollywood Reporter reported Army of the Dead's sequel. 

The Justice League: Snyder Cut director teased about the sequel of the horror flick on several occasions although never confirmed it officially. Along with directing, Snyder will also co-write the movie with John Wick: Chapter 4 writer Shay Hatten. While the news came as surprise to the fans, they will have to wait for quite a while as the director is committed to the sci-fi adventure movie titled Rebel Moon. 

Zack Snyder's two-year first-look deal with Netflix
