Not much is known about Zack Snyder's first post-Justice League film, Army of the Dead. The story, in a nutshell, is out there, but plot details remain under wraps. However, character names and descriptions for the upcoming Netflix project have now surfaced.
The majority of the breakdowns, as revealed by Observer, are for lead roles, which makes sense. After all, the apocalyptic zombie thriller is about a group of mercenaries, and these affairs routinely concern a collection of survivors.
Dave Bautista is playing Scott, a man in his 40s or 50s whose breakdown describes him as "Dry witted, thoughtful. Estranged from his family." A lead role, Scott is more than likely the ringleader of the mercenary group.
Given the number of lead roles listed, the mercenaries might be a large outfit. The entire list of character breakdowns can be found in the Observer article.
Bautista, who officially retired from wrestling to focus on his acting career, also appears this year in the comedy Stuber and My Spy, a family comedy coming out in the summer.
Army of the Dead is expected to begin filming this summer, based on a story by Snyder and a screenplay from Joby Harold, who recently wrote King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.
