Army of Thieves director and star Matthias Schweighöfer has affirmed a scene from the heist movie is an immediate homage to Zack Snyder’s 2004 Dawn of the Dead. While going through more than two decades at the center of attention in his nation of origin of Germany, Schweighöfer’s global achievement has been prodded on by his chance as safecracker Ludwig Dieter in Snyder’s zombie cavort Army of the Dead. Outside of Schweighöfer’s first English-language directorial exertion with Army of Thieves, the star will also appear in Sally El Hosaini-coordinated drama The Swimmers, based on the mind boggling genuine story of the Mardini sisters.
During a meeting with Vanity Fair, Schweighöfer affirmed that a grouping in his new movie is a homage to Snyder’s 2004 Dawn of the Dead remake. In Army of Thieves, Ludwig dreams that a zombified young lady staggers through his hallway, a scene similar to a second from the Snyder zombie classic. Schweighöfer proceeded to admit that, in spite of attempting to track down the dress worn by Snyder’s zombie, they couldn’t exactly track down the ideal match.
“We attempted to find even the same dress that the young lady was wearing in Dawn of the Dead. We were unable to find it, yet all the same it’s a significant similar shot.”
Although just releasing both Army of Thieves and Army of the Dead this year, Snyder has affirmed that a third film already has a title, with the following stage in the franchise being the Planet of the Dead. With nothing yet affirmed, including casting, Schweighöfer could well be the main returning individual from the film’s on-screen team, giving he endure the occasions at the finish of Army of the Dead. Until more information is released, there’s at least one final chance to consider Schweighöfer to be the fast-talking, charming Ludwig in Army of Thieves, regardless of whether he’s not retaliating zombies this time around.
