Dave Bautista follows the money in exclusive new Army of the Dead image

All bets are off in Zack Snyder's Army of the Dead. The director's upcoming zombie heist takes a motley crew of larger-than-life characters, including MCU alum Dave Bautista, and plonks them slap dab in the middle of an undead-infested Las Vegas. Their goal? Money. Lots of money.

But the almighty dollar isn't a winner-takes-all sort of deal. The risky venture, which sees Bautista's Scott Ward put together a team that includes his daughter Kate (Ella Purnell), mechanic Maria Cruz (Ana de la Reguera), and pilot Marianne Peters (Tig Notaro), is bankrolled by The Client, Hunter Bly (Hiroyuki Sanada).

In the exclusive image from sister publication Total Film magazine, Ward is deep in conversation with the suited and booted Bly – perhaps giving him the skinny on a master plan that includes Ward's gang heading into a casino formerly owned by Bly. Chances are, not everyone will make it out alive – or are all working towards the same goal.

Inside the new issue (out now), Total Film visits the set of Zack Snyder's Army of the Dead to get the lowdown on everything from Snyder mucking in as a camera operator on set, to how Army of the Dead is set to spiral out into a franchise. A prequel and animated series are both in the works for Netflix.

Army of the Dead is set to be released on Netflix from May 21.
