In a mashup of “Ocean’s Eleven” and “Dawn of the Dead,” “Army of the Dead” stars Dave Bautista as the head of a team of mercenaries that tries to steal countless millions from a Vegas casino during a zombie invasion. The film was first announced in 2008 as a sequel to Universal’s remake of “Dawn of the Dead,” but spent years in development hell before Netflix picked up the rights in 2019.
