The plot, which was conceived by Snyder and written by Joby Harold and Shay Hatten, follows a man who recruits a group of mercenaries to pull off the ultimate heist amidst a zombie apocalypse.

Snyder has been working on the film since 2007, originally having it in development at Warner Bros. Now, the project is in-development at Netflix. Word is the streaming service is sparing no expense with a budget reportedly in the $70 million to $90 million range.

“There are no handcuffs on me at all with this one,” Snyder previously said“I thought this was a good palate cleanser to really dig in with both hands and make something fun and epic and crazy and bonkers in the best possible way.”

Snyder is producing alongside his wife Deborah Snyder for The Stone Quarry with Wesley Collar. Ori Marmu and Andrew Norman will oversee for Netflix. Principal photography is scheduled to begin this July.

Snyder’s last zombie pic was also his first — 2004’s Dawn of the Dead starring Sarah Polley, Ving Rhames and Michael Kelly, among others. Since then he has mostly stayed close to the comic book genre with 300WatchmenMan of Steel, and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. He also made the action epic Sucker Punch.
