The Netflix blockbuster "Army of the Dead" has barely been released, but there is new material on the prequel already. As you can guess from the title, zombies don't play a role in this movie, instead the story of the German safecracker Ludwig Dieter will be told. Leading actor Matthias Schweighöfer, who already starred in "Army of the Dead", not only plays Ludwig Dieter, he also serves as the director. What the activities look like in front of the camera can be seen in five pictures, which not only show the main character, but also the five-person ensemble of thieves. In addition to Schweighöfer, the cast also includes Jonathan Cohen, Nathalie Emmanuel, Ruby O. Fee, Guz Khan, Stuart Martin and Noémie Nakai. According to Netflix, the film is even set to be released soon, but the streaming giant has not yet revealed the exact date.
