Zack Snyder's Army of the Dead has plenty on the way, between an animated spin-off show, a VR experience, and a prequel film called Army of Thieves which focuses on the safe-cracking specialist Dieter (Matthias Schweighöfer). The movie had its very own Comic-Con 2021 panel to tease details of the film, which concluded with a first look teaser trailer.

Take a look at the teaser now.

The movie will focus on Dieter being enlisted by a woman named Gwendoline (Nathanie Emmanuel) who has been "watching him" with great interest and gives him an opportunity to live a life a little less ordinary. Using the chaos of the zombie outbreak currently happening in the United States as a distraction, Gwendoline plans on using Dieter's specialized skill set to crack a list of impenetrable safes all throughout Europe.

During the panel, executive producers Zack and Deborah Snyder explained this is a love story between Gwendoline and Dieter, which we will see evolve over the course of the movie. They also emphasized the unique experience of being able to make a prequel movie that is a completely different genre from the first movie, calling Army of Thieves more like The Italian Job than a zombie thriller.

Schweighöfer is directing the movie, which was written by Army of the Dead co-writer Shay Hatten. It will hit Netflix in late 2021.
