Army of Thieves (2021)

Post by Krappy » Fri Aug 27, 2021 3:43 am

Small-town bank teller Dieter gets drawn into the adventure of a lifetime when a mysterious woman recruits him to join a crew of Interpol’s most wanted criminals, attempting to heist a sequence of legendary, impossible-to-crack safes across Europe.

Will premiere on Netflix's streaming service.
Filmed in Germany.
Matthias Schweighöfer (who plays Dieter in both films) directs.
Aside from 2021's Army of the Dead and this film, Netflix is also delivering fans an animated series titled Army of the Dead: Lost Vegas, which will reportedly tie into Army and explain more of what we saw in the first film (like the robot zombies).
Producer Deborah Snyder described the film as being similar to The Italian Job and also more of a "romantic comedy heist film" that happens to take place during the early stages of the zombie pandemic. She was quoted saying: "[It] takes place in a world where these zombies exist in America and it’s causing instability in the banking institutions. They’re moving money around, so it’s the perfect opportunity for a heist." It's said the story revolves around the Dieter character and detail how he learned to crack safes with previous heist teams.
This is a prequel to Zack Snyder's Army of the Dead and is reportedly more of a standalone film focusing on the Dieter character.
Army of Thieves premiered on Netflix on October 29, 2021.

Army of Thieves is a romantic comedy heist film that is a prequel to Zack Snyder's Army of the Dead. As someone who did NOT like the Dieter character I was genuinely surprised how much I enjoyed this.

With Army of Thieves streaming on Netflix this Friday, I recently spoke to director and star, Matthias Schweighöfer, about making the Army of the Dead prequel. Produced by Deborah and Zack Snyder, the prequel follows fan favorite Ludwig Dieter (played by Schweighöfer) as he’s recruited to join a crew of criminals to break into some impossible-to-crack safes across Europe. The film also stars Nathalie Emmanuel as the leader of a team alongside Guz Khan, Ruby O. Fee, Stuart Martin, and Jonathan Cohen. The Army of Thieves story was developed by Zack Snyder with Shay Hatten, who also wrote the script.
During the interview, Matthias Schweighöfer talked about making Army of Thieves, how they filmed the awesome bike stunts in the film, if they needed to get Nicolas Cage’s permission to use his name and footage in the film, why they first cut the film without any music, what he’s directing next, and what wht people should do if they only have one day in Berlin.
