This marks the fifth collaboration with Netflix and Shay Hatten, having previously written Netflix’s hit film Army of the Dead with Zack Snyder, and three upcoming films: The German language prequel Army of Thieves starring and directed by Matthias Schweighöfer, an anime spin-off Army of the Dead: Lost Vegas, and the vampire hunting film Day Shift starring Jamie Foxx.

Executive Producer: Sarah Bowen for Grand Electric
When a peaceful colony on the edge of the galaxy finds itself threatened by the armies of the tyrannical Regent Balisarius, they dispatch a young woman with a mysterious past to seek out warriors from neighboring planets to help them take a stand.
This marks a reunion for Newman, Snyder and Stuber. One of Netflix’s most prolific producers, Newman drafted Snyder to direct his first film, Dawn of The Dead, in 2004. Netflix’s Scott Stuber oversaw that film in his then role of vice-chairman of Universal.
The film continues Netflix’s relationship with the Snyders and Stone Quarry who just produced zombie thriller Army of the Dead. The film, helmed by Zack Snyder, is one of Netflix’s top ten most watched films.
