Ella Purnell Joins Zack Snyder's ARMY OF THE DEAD
British actress Ella Purnell, best known for starring in Tim Burton's "Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children" and BBC One's miniseries "Ordeal By Innocence", has joined the cast of Zack Snyder's upcoming zombie apocalypse flick "Army of the Dead". Snyder previously directed the 2004 "Dawn of the Dead" remake.

The film will focus on a zombie outbreak in Las Vegas and a man assembling a group of mercenaries to pull off a daring heist. The cast already includes Dave Bautista, Ana De La Reguera, Theo Rossi and Huma Qureshi. Purnell will star as Bautista's daughter Kate, who has been described as a volunteer with the World Health Organization, estranged from her father, as well as "taciturn, hard-working, driven".

Zack Snyder co-wrote the script alongside Shay Hatten ("John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum"). He and his wife Deborah Snyder are producing with Wesley Coller. Principal photography is expected to begin in July.

"Army of the Dead" will be released by Netflix in 2020.
