Zack Snyder back with Netflix for ‘Rebel Moon’

Filmmaker Zack Snyder gears up for his next movie with Netflix titled ‘Rebel Moon’. The sci-fi epic movie is based on an idea conceived by Zack Snyder a decade ago.  

As per the official details shared by Netflix, the plot sets off when a peaceful colony on the edge of the galaxy is threatened by the armies of a tyrannical regent named Balisarius. Desperate people dispatch a young woman with a mysterious past to seek out warriors from neighbouring planets to help them make a stand.

Snyder is co-writing the script along with Shay Hatten (Army of the Dead) and Kurt Johnstad (300). The movie will be produced by Zack Snyder and his wife Deborah Snyder, under their Stone Quarry banner. Eric Newman, known for producing Snyder’s earlier films, will also produce this project under his banner Grand Electric.

Talking about his inspiration for Rebel Moon, Snyder said in a statement:

“This is me growing up as an Akira Kurosawa fan, a Star Wars fan. He added “It’s my love of sci-fi and a giant adventure. My hope is that this also becomes a massive IP and a universe that can be built out.”

Snyder’s last movie ‘Army of The Dead’ became one of Netflix’s biggest hits with 72 million views in the first four weeks of its release. With Rebel Moon, Snyder will continue his partnership with Netflix. The movie is expected to get into production in early 2022.
