With Zack Snyder working on Army of the Dead for Netflix, now comes word that Dave Bautista is set to headline the picture.
Via Bloody Disgusting, Bautista – best known to genre fans as the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Drax the Destroyer – will take centre-stage in the big-budget zombie offering.
With filming to start later this year, the early word on Army of the Dead reads:
The adventure is set amid a zombie outbreak in Las Vegas, during with a man assembles a group of mercenaries to take the ultimate gamble, venturing into the quarantined zone to pull off the greatest heist ever attempted.
Expect more on Army of the Dead as it continues to develop. First and foremost for Big Dave, of course, is a battle against Triple H at tomorrow's WrestleMania 35; a match that's expected to be Bautista's last ever wrestling bout.
