Wondering when the prequel for Zack Snyder's Army of the Dead will premiere on Netflix? Wonder no more — Snyder himself revealed the release date for Army of Thieves in a teaser video on his Twitter account.

"ARMY OF THIEVES globally on Netflix OCTOBER 29," Snyder wrote in his Twitter post, getting right to the point.

The clip is only 14 seconds long and includes images that we've already seen from the trailer dropped in July, but the tweet does contain that crucial bit of information: we can see another heist movie in two short months.

Curious to learn more about what the film's all about? Check out Netflix's official synopsis:

In this prequel to Zack Snyder's Army of the Dead, small-town bank teller Dieter gets drawn into the adventure of a lifetime when a mysterious woman recruits him to join a crew of Interpol's most wanted criminals, attempting to heist a sequence of legendary, impossible-to-crack safes across Europe.

Snyder is Producing, Matthias Schweighöfer is Directing

We met the character Dieter (Matthias Schweighöfer) in Snyder's Army of the Dead, and he is now the main protagonist in the prequel, with Schweighöfer himself behind the camera to direct. Still, the movie will have Snyder's influence all over it — he's a producer and co-wrote the script with Shay Hatten.

The prequel is the next installment in what Snyder hopes is an Army of the Dead cinematic universe. There's also an animated project underway called Army of the Dead: Lost Vegas, another prequel that revolves around Dave Bautista's character from Army of the Dead.

In addition to Schweighöfer as Dieter, the cast includes Game of Thrones star Nathalie Emmanuel as Gwendoline, Ruby O. Fee as Korina, Stuart Martin as Brad Cage, Guz Khan as Rolph, and Jonathan Cohen as Delacroix.

Netflix is all aboard the Snyder train, and not just for the Army of the Dead universe. The streaming platform signed a two-year first-look deal with Zack and Deborah Snyder's production company. "My goal and hope are to bring as much quality content as I can and do it on a giant scale," Snyder told The Hollywood Reporter when news of the deal broke in July. Snyder is doing as he promised — in addition to these Army of the Dead projects he's also directing a Star Wars-esque sci-fi feature called Rebel Moon.

Army of Thieves will steal its way onto Netflix on October 29, 2021.
