Zack Snyder’s Rebel Moon will be “as big as you can make a movie”
Some directors try to take a little break after making several successful event films in a row. Zack Snyder is not one of them. Fresh out of his Netflix movie “Army of the Dead”, Snyder is now setting his sights on another original film – “Rebel Moon”. Described as a story “… set in motion when a peaceful colony on the edge of the galaxy is threatened by the armies of a tyrannical regent named Balisarius. Desperate people send a young woman with a mysterious past to search for warriors of the planets neighbors to help them take a stand, “the premise of the lofty concept would seem to lend itself to massive scale and a great deal of world-building.
That doesn’t deter Snyder, who told BroBible that the closest comparison in his filmography would be Krypton’s prologue to “Man of Steel,” which even those who aren’t fans of the film would say as one of his points. strong:
“Frankly, what I’m really interested in about Rebel Moon is creating a romantic sci-fi movie on a scale that’s, frankly, as big as you can make a movie.
I’ve never made a science fiction film on this scale. The start of “Man of Steel” on Krypton has some big sci-fi elements, but it’s still Krypton and there are some iconographic things you need to do. And that’s kind of what we do in ‘Rebel Moon’, but with the biggest steroids I can give him. “
Again, let no one ever say that Zack Snyder doesn’t back down from any challenge, especially the one he takes on. The director goes on to refer to “Rebel Moon” as “… a culmination of my love of mythology and my love of giant movies and action and really just epic cinema – to do something that satisfies my love of sci-fi film. ”It’s nearly impossible to imagine what a small-scale Zack Snyder movie would look like and, given those comments, I would venture to guess that this is exactly what it looks like. love.
“Rebel Moon” is still a few years away, but Snyder’s new “Army of the Dead” franchise is just getting started.
