The movie is also set to star Game of Thrones and F9's Nathalie Emmanuel. The cast also includes Ruby O'Fee, Stuart Martin, and Guztavo Khanage. Snyder is a producer on the film and has a story credit.
"Well, absolutely," Snyder previously said when asked by CBR if he's interested in making a sequel to Army of the Dead. "But can I, I don't think I'm allowed to say that. I don't think that's, like, a thing. They like, you know, that's like, but suffice it to say that, yes, I am very excited. If it were possible, or if anyone was interested in it to continue the adventures of this world will be fun. So no, man, zombie oyster. These oysters can become zombies."
